Sigfredo Chacón - Crossings
- The most complete work dedicated to Venezuelan artist Sigfredo Chacón
- Includes previously unpublished historical photographs and critical texts by authors of international prestige
Chacón's work can be read as a pictorially narrated story of the problems pictorially narrated history of the problems of modern and contemporary painting. Throughout his career, genres and aesthetics are transgressed in his artistic production, "pure" painting is invaded by conceptual art or becomes an installation, and the most radical geometry shares the stage with abstract expressionism.
This book is the most complete editorial work dedicated to the artist, one of the main protagonists of contemporary Venezuelan and Latin American art. It contains critical texts by authors of international and national prestige, such as Jesús Fuenmayor, Dan Cameron, Nadja Rottner and Félix Suazo; it also includes a complete interview with the artist by graphic designer and curator Álvaro Sotillo and a detailed chronology by Israel Ortega and Leonor Solá.
Illustrated with numerous reproductions of his works and a selection of previously unpublished historical photographs, it is destined to become an essential bibliographical reference.
