IÑAKI IMAZ // Arenzana Imaz Intxausti Montón Peral // TABAKALERA DONOSTIA

 

This exhibition, curated by Peio Aguirre and Beatriz Herráez, aims to track the careers and positions of five artists whose work has been in progress from the late eighties to present-day. The sequence "Arenzana Imaz Intxausti Montón Peral" forms a phrase intertwined with surnames, and also a rich sum of visual and formal images. Those are their surnames. Their names, Miren, Iñaki, Gem, Idoia and Alberto; another nominal sequence that re-joins work to encounter, dialogue and collaboration. Five artists, five voices.

A common feature of these artists is that they belong to a generation that studied at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Leioa (UPV/EHU) complementing their training with courses and stays at the Arteleku centre in Donostia. It is important to set that moment in context as a moment in which the artists come to a renewal of artistic languages, chasing a continuation and alternative to the so-called "New Basque Sculpture". The historic character of this exhibition is complemented by a contemporary portrait of the same artists.
