For the 2015 edition of ArtBO, Sicardi Gallery presents an exhibition of work by Miguel Ángel Rojas (b. 1946, Colombia) and Miguel Angel Ríos (b. 1943, Argentina). The exhibition pairs the two Miguel Angels in a dialogue which touches on geographic subjectivity, the politics of the drug economy, and the language of conceptualism.
Based in Bogotá, Rojas is one of the foremost conceptual artists of his generation. His work spans the media of photography, video, installation, sculpture, and drawing.
Argentine artist Miguel Angel Ríos has lived and worked between Mexico and New York since the 1980s. His videos, works on paper, drawings, photographs, and sculptures share a critical narratives about human experience, violence, and mortality, especially from the vantage point of borders and landscapes in the Americas.
Seen together, Rojas and Ríos illuminate some of the most poignant contemporary reflections on place and self.
