Pivô is pleased to announce Rodrigo Hernández’ project as part of the institution’s Annual Exhibitions Programme.

Hernández deals with many languages such as drawing, painting, sculpture and installation in works that join formalism and the social history of the images and materials he uses. Beyond that, there is a central inquiry about the nature of art in his research.

For his show at Pivô, Hernández will be an artist-in-residency in the institution, so his exhibition will be the outcome of objects directly produced in the space and others organized displayed as an installation.

 

Hernández residency is made in partnership with InclusArtiz Institute.
