DENVER, CO.- The Museum of Contemporary Art Denver presents the remarkable work of four artists from throughout the Americas with four solo exhibitions this summer. With these exhibitions, MCA Denver serves as the lead cultural partner in the 2013 Biennial of the Americas, an international festival of art, culture and ideas, which kicked off with an inaugural forum on July 16, 2013 and runs through Labor Day. The Biennial brings together leaders from politics, business, education and the arts in a cross-cultural experience of forums and exhibitions, celebrating the artistic, intellectual and political spheres of the Americas.

MCA Denver presents a new solo exhibition by Argentinian artist Guillermo Kuitca. Guillermo Kuitca: Diarios features a series of drawings in which the artist stretched discarded canvases over a table from his parents’ garden. He then spent periods of time marking their surface with intentional and accidental doodles, drawings and notations. The Diarios, a name given to the works by the artist, are overtly personal, combining together phone numbers, titles of paintings, email addresses, blank spots where books sat, lists and collaged elements that record the ebb and flow of life. The canvases record all of the artist’s normal studio activity, resulting in a final work that is a hybrid of intentionality and chance. To complement the exhibition, a video of the most current Diario being made in Kuitca’s Buenos Aires-studio is being projected as part of the exhibition.

Brazilian artist Tatiana Blass presented new work during the inaugural week of the 2013 Biennial of the Americas. For her first solo exhibition in the United States, Blass created a new, site-specific installation for MCA Denver. Titled Electrical Room, the installation occupies both the Congdon Family Gallery and the Logan Promenade. Hundreds of cords and plugs wind through the Congdon Family Gallery, creating a tangled web of material. The cords all come together at a fixed point on one wall, penetrating the wall and seeming to provide power to a dense installation of audio-visual equipment in the adjacent gallery. Piled in a seemingly haphazard manner, the screens and monitors nonetheless feature video and sound in such a way that, collectively, all the elements compose a single narrative.

Denver-based artist John McEnroe presents a new, site-specific work for the Fries Family Atrium as well as an exhibition of sculpture and other works presented in the Mary Caulkins and Karl Kister Gallery and the Joseph Crescenti Family Gallery.

To create the sculpture, which fills the Fries Family Atrium, McEnroe manipulates a polymer to resemble monumental drips of paint. Sheer and light, this large-scale installation includes stalactite forms that course through the open spaces of the museum. The installation is complemented by other sculptural works in the Mary Caulkins and Karl Kister Gallery and the Joseph Crescenti Family Gallery.

Also in connection with the Biennial of the Americas, MCA Denver welcomes the first United States solo show of Argentinian artist and architect Gaspar Libedinsky.

Curated by Nora Burnett Abrams, Gaspar Libedinsky: Productos Caseros is being presented in the Whole Room from July 16 through September 15, 2013. Gaspar Libedinsky is also a curator for Draft Urbanism, the Biennial of the Americas’ 2013 exhibition. Gaspar Libedinsky was born in 1976 in Buenos Aires. He lives and works in Buenos Aires, London and New York.
