SAN ANTONIO, TX.- The Linda Pace Foundation
is presenting the Texas debut of Secondary Stories, a room-sized installation by Brazilian artist Rivane Neuenschwander. Neuenschwander has become widely regarded for her often ephemeral work that explores narratives about language, nature, social interactions and the passing of time.
The exhibition, showcasing Secondary Stories as well as three video installation works, opened at SPACE, the public gallery of the Linda Pace Foundation located at 111 Camp Street, on April 30, 2016 and will remain on view through July 29, 2017. The exhibition is free and open to the public during gallery hours.
The Linda Pace Foundation is delighted to present this hypnotic installation by Rivane Neuenschwander, says Foundation trustee Kathryn Kanjo. In Secondary Stories, she seems to take viewers through the looking glass: the outsized confetti makes us feel small and we become lost in the slowly shifting play of light and color. Since her Artpace residency in 2001, Rivane has achieved great acclaim, with major exhibitions at the New Museum 2010 and mal-entendidos at the Museu de Arte Moderna de Sao Paulo in 2014, which included a version of Omission Points, created at Artpace.
Born in 1967 in Brazil, where she continues to live and work, Rivane Neuenschwander is informed by the Neoconcrete movement of the 1970s. Her work offers concrete manifestations and discrete objects to be observed, considered, analyzed and understood for significance beyond the verbal. She received a BFA from the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil in 1993 and completed her MFA at the Royal College of Art in London. Winner of the Yanghyun Prize in South Korea in 2013 and shortlisted for the Guggenheim Museums Hugo Boss Prize in 2004, the artist has exhibited her work internationally throughout the past twenty years.
