The show unites brings together a selection of new jobs of divergent practices into a conversation surrounding reinvention, permanence, and materiality.

Rather than an unsubtle or literal framing of glue as a common adhesive, the presentation considers the artist as a kind of binding agent who possesses an alchemical capacity to forge something unprecedented out of seemingly disparate materials— and to unite families and chosen communities. Such processes of renewal invoke a range of formal and conceptual concerns while embracing novel approaches to assemblage, collage, painting, and sculpture.

Aldo Chaparro is a Mexican artist peruvian born (1965, Lima). His work is based on the interactions between different materials and disciplines; from curatorship, film, public art, architecture, industrial and edito- rial design (Editorial Celeste, Mexico, 2000- 2014), to music, sculpture, painting, installation, and so on.

This tendency to jump from one language to another has gene- rated in him a constant concern about the processes in art and the connection that these disciplines have with broader areas of socie- ty. In this way, his work has become a testimony of various proces- ses, discarding in some way the idea that the value ofthe work is in the resulting object and its strict relationship with the art world.

Chaparro currently has studios in Mexico (Mexico City, Valle de Bravo, and Monterrey), Peru (lima), Spain (Madrid), and the united States (los Angeles). He distributes his time among them, seeking to generate a more intimate and deep connection with the cities where he develops his projects.

His work is part of important collections around the world. likewise, his Window Displays project in each of his studios has gradually become an important platform and benchmark for young artists in each city where he works.

Chaparro is enlivened by its eclecticism, celebrating the artist’s drive towards experimentation, newness, and of course, hotness.
