In August Vanguard Gallery is pleased to present Muntadas: Look See Perceive, a selection of eight works by the Spanish artist Antoni Muntadas. This exhibition examines several perspectives of thinking and artistic proposals as significant examples of different projects and work issues developed by the artist through his career. It will be the artist’s first exhibition in the gallery. The works selected for this exhibit are taken from some of Muntadas’ more emblematic projects —«On Translation: Warning», «The Construction of Fear», or «Asian Protocols»— as well as some video installations that attest to his valuable contribution in the medium of video. Every project works as a new pattern of something that didn’t exist before, but dealing with the current socio-political developments by stimulating the critical thinking of the public. In fact the exhibition title points to this deliberately. Look See Perceive (2009), the work that gives name to the show, is an installation that connects with Muntadas' permanent intention on activating the sensorial skills of the viewer, in order to transform spectator into an active subject in the exhibition space. All the installations, videos, objects and prints showed in this exhibition are art works that, in a challenging way, encourage to the audiences to reflect, think and discuss about the social, political and cultural constructions of the current world.
