Dora Garcia
Artist

With a career stretching back to the early 1990s, Dora García’s unique oeuvre is internationally renowned for her rigorous and incisive work based on extensive artistic research into the blurred boundaries between the real and its representation. Through performances, drawings, films, texts, expanded books or installations, she lays bare the mechanisms that rule cultural communication processes, exploring and questioning the nature of the relationship between artist, artwork and audience. García’s work is filled with references to literature, theater or psychoanalysis. For her upcoming exhibition at ProjecteSD, entitled La Peste (The Plague), she uses literature again referring to Albert Camus’ text to unfold a series of new works based on drawings and performance.

García (Valladolid, 1965) represented Spain at the Venice Biennale in 2011 and in 2012 she participated in Documenta (13). She has had solo shows at the CGAC (Santiago de Compostela, 2009), Galleria Civica di Trento (2010), Power Plant (Toronto, 2011), Kunsthaus Bregenz (2013), Universidad Torcuato di Tella (Buenos Aires, 2014) and recently at the MNCARS (Madrid, 2018), and Museo Reina Sofia, to mention a few.

  • Anu Põder: Space for My Body
    Jan 3 – Jun 30, 2024
    Muzeum Susch
    Susch, Switzerland
    Anu Põder (1947-2013) is one of Estonia’s most revelatory voices of the last five decades. Her work has stood out since the 1970s as uniquely crafted, originally conceived, and deeply personal. Yet, because it was somehow out of sync with the then established art landscape in Estonia, it has been overlooked for many years. Põder is known for exploring the human body, highlighting the fragility, impermanence, and ephemerality of life (more…)
