Jose Bedia: Inner Circle Journey
On view through May 2023
Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (MARCO)
Nuevo León, Monterrey
The Museum of Contemporary Art of Monterrey presents Jose Bedia: Inner Circle Journey, a retrospective that proposes a journey through the artist’s own production and the ancestral cultures that influence him. The exhibition curated by Taiyana Pimentel, director of MARCO, and José Bedia Fuertes, director of the artist’s studio, brings together 102 works of art, mostly paintings, drawings and installations.
The title of the exhibition refers to an introspective journey in terms of culture and identity, since Bedia’s art blurs the borders between the original peoples of Latin America from the symbolic, the primal and the sacred; making the past act as an active value in the present. In this way, the artist generates a symbiosis between primitive cultures and contemporary art.
