Gary Nader is pleased to present a Fernando Botero Sculpture Exhibit at the Gary Nader Art Centre in Wynwood from Feb. 9 through April 9. The exhibit was curated by Nader to showcase the modern master’s significant contributions to the modern and contemporary art world.

 

Fernando Botero was born in Medellin, Colombia in 1932. His signature style portrays people and figures in large, exaggerated volume, which can represent political criticism or humor, depending on the piece. He is considered the most recognized and quoted living artist from Latin America. In 1960, Botero took up residence in New York and, in the same year, won the Guggenheim National Prize for Colombia.

 

Botero’s work has been featured in several solo and group exhibitions at Gary Nader’s galleries. Botero has exhibited his work at the Museum of Modern Art in Copenhagen, the Maillol Museum in Paris, the Palazzo Benezia in Rome, the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, and the National Museum in Bogotá, among others. Botero lives and works in Paris, Monte Carlo, Pietrasanta, and New York.

Gary Nader Art Centre is proud to present an exhibition by Brazilian contemporary master Claudio Tozzi. The exhibition “Territorios” will feature Tozzi’s most recent work and will be on view from March 2 through April 2 at the Gary Nader Art Centre in Wynwood, located at 62nd NE 27th Street.  Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Claudio Tozzi initiated his career as an artist in the early ‘60s, with the appropriation of objects, images taken from newspapers, comics and photos associated with social issues through symbolic connotations. In the ‘70s, he created a new syntax through the construction of a thread of reticules and chromatic granulations that led to structures and spaces full of intense symbolic meanings. From the ‘80s until his more recent works, he intensified his formal concerns and started to work with basic structural elements such as lines, planes, colors and organic forms and materials that create formal analogies with pre-existing images and enlarge their constructive characteristics. Gary Nader Art Centre is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
