Mariano Ferrante – Site-Specific Commission at Centro Cultural Córdoba, Argentina
Art Projects International is pleased to announce that a monumental site-specific work “Monocromía en cuatro colores Nro 2” by Mariano Ferrante was recently unveiled to celebrate the re-opening of the Centro Cultural Córdoba, one of the most important cultural institutions in the second largest city in Argentina.
Prominently displayed and installed on the interior walls and ceiling of the expansive Centro Cultural Córdoba complex, this newly commissioned work measures 240 square meters and features Ferrante’s signature layered geometric diamond patterns, created from the juxtaposition of four different colors, similarly found in his “Monocromo” paintings. Currently, Ferrante’s Monocromo paintings are the focus of a solo exhibition entitled “Monocromo” at Art Projects International in Tribeca, New York.
“Monocromía en cuatro colores Nro 2” transforms both the interior and exterior spaces, complementing the sculptural quality and structural design of this architecturally remarkable building. Ferrante’s richly colored work contrasts the raw, exposed concrete ceiling of both the subterranean auditorium and exhibition space, and the work’s repeated patterns of four colors also appear in the environs of the building’s public courtyard entrance, actively engaging visitors, connecting the external space and foreshadowing the inspired interior space.
“Monocromía en cuatro colores Nro 2” is part of the public commission project curated by Santiago Bengolea and presented along with another site-specific work by Leila Tschopp.
