SANTA MONICA, CA.- Christopher Grimes Gallery announces Future Anterior, an exhibition of new work by Carlos Bunga. This is Bunga’s first exhibition with the gallery. Future Anterior features two distinct works. In the main gallery, Bunga is creating a site-specific installation based on the idea of memory, the present and the future using the ordinary, unassuming materials he has become known for: cardboard and adhesive tape. The process-oriented nature inherent in this work forms a fusion between the gallery’s existing space and the abstract space that he creates, resulting in a finished installation involving an extreme degree of precision coupled with aesthetic care and delicacy.

In addition to his architectural structures, Bunga also works in drawing, photography, painting and sculpture. In the south gallery, he debuts a slide projection piece titled Skin. In this work, the projected images of the surfaces of his paintings touch upon both the plastic and organic components of his practice.

Bunga lives and works in Barcelona. After studying Fine Arts at the Escola Superior de Arte e Design in Caldas da Rainha in Portugal, Bunga first attracted international attention with his work at the contemporary art biennial Manifesta 5 in San Sebastian, Spain (2004). Since then, he has been awarded a visual arts grant by the Fundación Marcelino Botín, Spain (2006) and has had solo shows of his work at Museu Serralves, Porto, Portugal (2012); Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA (2011); Miami Art Museum, Miami, FL (2009); and Museo de Arte Contemporanéa de Vigo, Spain (2009). Group exhibitions include University Art Museum, University of California, Santa Barbara, CA (2012); Warsaw Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw, Poland (2009); Museu d’Arte Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA), Barcelona, Spain (2009); Instituto Valenciano de Arte Moderno (IVAM), Valencia, Spain (2008); New Museum, New York, NY (2007); Justus Lipsius Building, Brussels, Belgium (2007); Artists Space, New York, NY (2005); and as part of inSite_05 at San Diego Museum of Art, San Diego, CA (2005). His work is in the collections of such institutions as Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA; Serralves Foundation, Porto, Portugal; and Museo d'art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA), Barcelona, Spain.
