NAMLA Launches Julio Larraz Sculpture Exhibit at Bayfront Park

December 06, 2017

The Nader Art Museum Latin America is pleased to announce the exhibition Julio Larraz Sculpture at Bayfront Park, 301 N. Biscayne Blvd, Miami, FL.
 
The exhibition curated by Gary Nader and produced by the Nader Art Museum Latin America will be on view until December 19, 2017.
 
Julio Larraz is considered one of the most important contemporary Latin American artists. Among the exhibition at Bayfront Park is a variety of large-scale sculptures inspired by a figurative tradition and the rich imagination of the artist, who creates a new reality of sociological and historical allegories through works like Mars, Space Station, The Trojan Horse, Ganimides, Innominato, The Sovereign, Pin and Balls and Il Monarca, among others.   
 
Simultaneously to the Bayfront Park exhibit, the NAMLA’s interim space located in the Wynwood Arts District features a series of Larraz’s half-busts Emperors that will complement the exhibition at Bayfront Park, offering to viewers an insight of the artist’s criticism towards dictatorships, political and social inequality and abuse of power.
 
Art critic Luciano Caprile has said about Larraz’s oeuvre: “The art of Julio Larraz charges ahead, is often openly poetic, with unconventional and uncomfortable images of life. He does not show us Eden, where life could be beautiful, but presents us with visual and conceptual conflicts, like it or not, of the world in which we live and take part in every day”.
