We are glad to announce the participation of Juan Araujo to “FRONT International: Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art” from July 14 to September 30, 2018.
Opening celebration: Today July 14, 7:30 pm, Euclid Avenue, between Mayfield Road and East 115th Street
It is the first edition and it opens with work by more than 110 artists at 28 venues across Cleveland and in nearby Akron and Oberlin.
“FRONT International: Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art” is an exhibition comprised of artist commissions, performances, films, and public programs.
Juan Araujo was born in 1971 in Caracas, Venezuela. He lives and works in Lisbon, Portugal. Since 1998, Araujo has been dedicated to artistic appropriations. He began by creating paintings which investigated the history of art by reproducing artists’ work found in books, catalogues, and online. From 2004, he has engaged with architectural topics whilst keeping the same basic approach, focusing primarily on private residences built in the mid-twentieth century which exemplify Latin American Modernism; Oscar Niemeyer´s ‘Casa das Canoas’ (1953) in Rio de Janeiro, Lina Bo Bardi´s ‘Casa de Vidro’ (1951) in Sao Paulo, and the Luis Barragán house (1948) in Mexico City.
