Running through Saturday 3rd February BienCuadrado presents an ephemeral pop up exhibition featuring a selection of our favorite artists from 2017 and presenting a taste of our planned exhibitions for 2018.

This idiosyncratic shows presents a selection of artists whose works are as varied in styles as they are in their use of materials. From the delicate works using paper and goache of Rithika Merchant to the 'brutalism' of Simón Vázquez's sculptu...

Paul Delaroche - The Execution of Lady Jane Grey (1833)

The Execution of Lady Jane Grey is an amazing oil painting on display in the  depicting the moments before the execution of Lady Jane Grey, the Nine Days' Queen, as John Brydges gently directs her head towards the wooden plinth over which her blood would spill.

As an exhibition that deals with the post-industrial...

Pásate a ver nuestra última exposición, un homenaje a tiempos pasados, el bricolaje y la cultura analógica: ‘We Used To Do It Out In The Park’ 

Ashwan reutiliza cajas de cartón desechadas y las transforma en obras de arte que mezclan diferentes materiales revestidos con resina. La metamorfosis resultante produce piezas con una doble sensación de degeneración post-industrial urbana que, al mismo tiempo, se manifiesta como un tributo a las subcult...

Acompanya'ns en una celebració de DIY a l'estil tradicional, cultures analògiques, en la nostra més recent exhibició: 'We Used To Do It Out In The Park'

Ashwan reutilitza caixes de cartró i les transforma en grans peces de materials barrejats, recoberts en resina. La metamorfosi resultant crea un sentit simultani de degeneració post-industrial urbana i un homenatge a les subcultures rebels que van afegir color a aquests ambients. 

El desig de ser s...

VOID es el producto de un sentido de la realidad y la percepción que se deforma

bajo la presión de un cambio global incomprensible. En el centro de este cambio están las sociedades de todo el mundo, atrapadas en dispares corrientes de información, ideas, newzak y infotainment, desprovistas de cualquier marco centralizado para el consumo fructífero.


Tomando el ruido de fondo de dicho cambio, McMahon se basa en la mediatización de lo cotidiano, llev...
