Artist

Nicolás Grum

Nicolás Grum focuses his investigation on power relationships and its most diverse manifestations in different contexts. In the last years, he has been working specifically on museums from the western world, and collections acquired through colonial networks, providing a critique over museums representation and museological practice. He understands his work as a process that articulates through manipulation or re-interpretation of historical facts, in order to create an alternative narrative of what is imposed as “the official truth”.

Nicolás Grum has exhibited work at Beijing 798 Biennale; transmediale, Berlin; and Instituto Itaú Cultura, Sau Paulo, among others.

Miki Leal

Miki Leal’s practice is characterized by the use of irony, distancing from conventional painting, and the questioning of “isms”. His work reflects his personal iconography and explores a range of topics including architecture, cinema, travel, jazz music, and the camp aesthetic. Over the years, he developed sculptural ceramic pieces to move his painting into three-dimensional space.

Miki Leal has exhibited work at Track 16 Gallery, Los Angeles; County Hall Gallery, London; and CAC Málaga, Spain, among others.
