The Centro de Arte Contemporaneo de Malaga Presents Monica Bonvicini Exhibition

. September 12, 2011 . 0 Comments

The Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Málaga is presenting A BLACK HOLE OF NEEDS, HOPES AND AMBITIONS, the first exhibition in Spain of the work of Monica Bonvicini, one of the most important names in contemporary art today. The exhibition focuses on the relationship between gender and power, not as a display or vision of social and human evolution but rather as an ongoing dialogue with the viewer, who inevitably responds to the provocative nature of Bonvicini’s work. A BLACK HOLE OF NEEDS, HOPES AND AMBITIONS comprises a large-scale installation entitled Satisfy Me (2010) made of aluminium letters. The CAC Málaga has been chosen as the venue for its first display inside a building.

“I don’t make art to be beautiful”. This phrase sums up Monica Bonvicini’s vision of artistic creation in general and her own in particular in which she aims to establish a permanent dialogue between her work and the viewer. Provocation is used as a means to justify the end and the ultimate aim of her activities. Over the course of her career Bonvicini has focused on representing power through everyday elements to be seen all around us in cities, specifically buildings and their structures. For the artist, architecture is a discipline associated with the masculine gender.
