Caprichos Anatomicos on view through September 20

Caprichos Anatomicos is about artists depicting obsession through abstraction: mania, fascination, fixation, passion, and preoccupation. Through abstraction, the artist is reducing focus—focusing on one obsession—a word, an image, a gesture. Abstraction becomes the complexity: erasing what we don’t need, we will find what we want. Curated by Angelica Muro and Juan Luna-Avin.

Participating Artists:
Facundo Argañaraz
Miguel Arzabe
