Archive 79 Art Gallery Presents “Chiaroscuro”

Archive 79 Art Gallery Presents ChiaroscuroThursday, September 9, 7:30pm-11pm – Archive 79 Art Gallery, 170 Northeast 79th Street, Miami

The term chiaroscuro stems from the Italian words chiaro (“clear” or “bright”) and oscuro (“obscure” or “dark”), and refers to the arrangement of light and shadow in a work of art. These concepts also lead us to reflect, in an inescapable way, on the drivers of Eros and Thanatos, in life and death.

Based on this reflection, Archive 79 Art Gallery reopens its doors to present the exhibition “Chiaroscuro”, in which the artists Ayşe G. Süter (Istanbul, Turkey) and Giancarlo Vitor will be participating (Lima, Peru).

The set of works is marked by the dramatic contrast between the proposals of both artists, whose atmospheres are defined between light and darkness. It is not a coincidence that they come from opposite hemispheres, in whose respective coordinates will hardly coincide simultaneously in day or night.
