Mashup (Chaos A.D.)
An exhibition by Luiz Lima
Opening with music and drinks: 23th February 2017, 18.30 h
"The challenges of the creative process"
talk with artists and guests: 25th February 2017, 18 h
Mashups (Chaos A.D.) shows a series of works by Luiz Lima, a photographer based in Vienna. During the exhibition the visitors will have the chance to see his works and also to attend a talk with his fellow artists and musicians.
The works are inspired by the observations the photographer did in his hometown Rio de Janeiro. It is a city ´sui generis´, in a land with a vast cultural diversity and lifestyle as well as a diverse understanding of life.
The basis of this series derives from the music as the backbone in the pictorial melting process.
Luiz Lima says: “For the choice of the gallery/exhibition space in Vienna, where I show these works it is important, that it (the gallery or the exhibition space) understands the intention behind the images and also there is a symbolic connection between art and attitude.
