Juan Naranjo Galería de Arte & Documentos is pleased to invite you to the inauguration of the Jordi Cerdà exhibition, from minimalism to conceptual art, 1967-1988, which will be held on October 17 at 8 pm, at Calle Casanova, 136- 138, B-3, 08036. The exhibition can be seen until November 14 by appointment at firstname.lastname@example.org
The exhibition Jordi Cerdà, from minimalism to conceptual art, shows us the production that the artist made between the late 1960s and the late 1980s. It is the first time that his artistic work of this period has been extensively reviewed. Very interesting in his extensive work, but at the same time is very little known at present, was exposed and reproduced in different publications, but has been revisited on rare occasions. The exhibition is composed of paintings, drawings, photographs, photocopies, films and videos by Jordi Cerdà and shows us his evolution, the step he took from pictorial abstraction to conceptual art, in which he used other media such as photography, cinema or the video to make a work more related to the use of verbal language.
Jordi Cerdà Gerebés (Barcelona, 1949) Studied painting and design at the Massana School and graduated in Fine Arts at the University of Barcelona. He completes his training with Architecture and Philosophy studies. At the beginning of the 70s he began to work on the elaboration of the image and joined the Catalan sphere close to the conceptual. He is interested in the theoretical reflection on art and its representation, themes that constitute the axis of his interventions. At the same time, he makes experimental films, an activity that will be very productive in his career, and also creates photomontages, performances, actions and installations. Like other Catalan conceptual artists, he also works with the object, heritage of dadaism, pop and new realism. His current work focuses on literary discourse, with the image and the object.
