David Batchelor | Alfredo Volpi
Cecilia Brunson Projects is delighted to present a joint exhibition by David Batchelor (b. 1955, Dundee) and Alfredo Volpi (1896 - 1988, São Paulo). This show celebrates Batchelor's long relationship with Latin American art, and Brazilian art in particular.
We're excited to say that Batchelor will be the first British born artist ever to be exhibited at Cecilia Brunson Projects and we're delighted to be celebrating the rich history of exchange, influence, and interaction between European and Latin American artists. The exhibition will revolve around an especially commissioned tapestry - a reproduction of one of Batchelor's Covid Variation paintings from 2020 - which was hand-woven at the Taller Mexicano de los Gobelinos, a workshop in Guadalajara that specialises in transforming, or transposing, artworks into this new, textile medium. This tapestry will be complemented by a variety of other works by Batchelor including his Concreto sculptural works and Colour Chart paintings. Batchelor’s work will be accompanied by a viewing room presentation of paintings by Alfredo Volpi in collaboration with Almeida e Dale Art Gallery, São Paulo.
A booklet with an interview with David Batchelor has been published for the exhibition. There will be copies available at the gallery.
