Sicardi | Ayers | Bacino is pleased to announce the opening of Unearthing the Mirror, a solo exhibition with new work by Gabriel de la Mora (b. 1968, Mexico). The exhibition will be De la Mora's fifth solo show at the gallery and features thirteen works made of pigmented feathers of turkeys native to Mexico. This series Neornithes exemplifies de la Mora's sophisticated treatment of highly delicate, intricate materials and the conceptual balance he strikes between universal geometric abstraction and the meaning generated by a specific place and time. The exhibition is accompanied by a curatorial text written by Gabriela Rangel, writer, curator, and Artistic Director for MALBA (Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires) in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Gabriela Rangel notes, "The Neornithes unearth old debates over the appropriation and recovery of the indigenous past, transporting them this time onto the terrain of the universalist aspirations of the avant-garde movements that advocated abstract art in its Latin American versions, from which Mexican modern art was programmatically removed, unlike in Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, and Venezuela." De la Mora’s works are represented in numerous international collections, including: The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH), Houston TX; Albright Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, NY; Art Museum of the Americas, Organisation of American States, Washington D.C; Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City, Mexico; Fudación Televisa, Mexico City, Mexico; Perez Art Museum, Miami, FL; Colección Banco de la Republica, Bogota, Colombia; ARTIUM, Centro-Museo Vasco de Arte Contemporáneo, Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain; Centro Gallego de Arte Contemporáneo, Santiago de Compostela, Spain; Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation, Miami, FL; Colección FEMSA, Monterrey, Mexico; Fundación/Colección JUMEX, Mexico City, Mexico; Museo de Arte Moderno, Mexico City, Mexico; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, CA, among others. The exhibition will open on Thursday, January 21, 2021 and will be on view through February 27, 2021.
