Travesía Cuatro CDMX presents Escultura de viaje [Travel Sculpture], an exhibition of works by Bruno Munari and Mateo López in conversation.
Bruno Munari (Milan, 1907 – 1998) was a designer, poet, sculptor, educator and author of children’s books. This exhibition is comprised of sculptures, drawings, collages and books from key moments within Munari’s oeuvre, spanning over 40 years, from the 1940s until the late 1990s, and highlights themes that would remain at the core of his practice: his interest in dynamism, the machine, explorations of movement and light, research into language and the human face, and theoretical reconstructions of imaginary objects.
In response to Munari’s oeuvre, Colombian artist Mateo López presents a selection of sculptures and drawings that take on the Italian artist’s understanding of the world and further expand the development of new forms of visual communication, which he carried out through ideas from pedagogy and play. Lopez’s sculptures are initially rendered in drawing, then produced in three-dimensional form
Both artists create with their work a dialogue between artistic disciplines, something inherited from the avant-garde movements and schools of the early XXth century. Their practices are imbued with a great deal of imagination, a trait they study, develop and contemplate as the instrument that may ultimately trigger a change in our behavior and thought as human beings.
