Colombian-born painter Fanny Sanín (born 1938) has dedicated a long, prolific career to the exploration of geometric abstraction; her oeuvre is characterized by large-scale canvases depicting hard-edge geometric compositions in vibrant color configurations. Over the past five decades, Sanín has exhibited widely, mainly in Latin America and the United States (where she has lived since the 1970s, in New York), positioning herself as one of Latin America’s most extraordinary colorists.
This publication is a long-overdue comprehensive monograph on this pioneering painter. Featuring contributions from prominent academics and curators such as Beverly Adams, Jay Oles and Edward J. Sullivan, the book contextualizes Sanín’s work within international geometric abstraction and offers a glimpse into the artist’s rigorous working process. It surveys her entire career, from her energetic abstractions of the 1960s through the evolution and continual refinement of her ongoing commitment to concrete abstraction.

What was once a backyard swimming pool is now a murky pond with a budding ecosystem. In a corner of the overgrown garden rests a stone roughly hand-engraved with ‘‘TIME IS’’. The wild cacophony of nature continues inside with native flowers, a pair of preserved emu legs, butterfly wings, piles of rocks, animal skin, feathers and gum nuts scattered across benches, tables and side desks.
A French and a Swiss curator – Paul Ardenne, art historian and author of an authoritative work on the art of the Anthropocene epoch, and Barbara Polla, writer and initiator of an Environment and Health Program of the University of Geneva – have been organizing yearly video reviews since 2011 for showcasing the most progressive works of video art. This year, exceptionally, the event is held in Hungary, within the framework of Art Capital. In terms of thematics, the works share in common references to the relationship between the natural and built environments, to the global effects of human interventions, as well as to the memory of Paradise Lost and the idea of creating a new Eden.
We are urged to imagine a sustainable, beautiful, inviting world: to reconstruct Eden and a post-human way of being in the world.
Bienvenue au Paradis !
Dans le cadre de l'exposition TALKING ABOUT A REVOLUTION, conçue par Paul Ardenne, Visconti22 et VIDEO FOREVER ont le plaisir de vous inviter à la projection VIDEO FOREVER 36 *RÉSISTANCES À LA MARGE*
