Fernando López Lage
January – May 2021
Opening January 2 & 3, 2021, from 4 to 9 pm
In celebration of our 30th anniversary we are inaugurating a magnificent group exhibition to start the new season in Punta del Este.
With an exhibition proposal that will rotate throughout the summer, we will exhibit a group of 40 historical and recent artists who have been part of our gallery.
Seen as a whole, this unique exhibition can be understood as a constellation; a stellar gathering that can be seen from South America, and with a broad view, guides us through time and space to show us Xippas’ spectacular trajectory. A collection and vision which is both particular and universal of the artistic happenings undergone during these last three decades, that are illuminated in the present and project the future.
We invite you to travel along this path through different times, cities and cultures of the world, with the help of emblematic artists who have accompanied us since our beginnings, others that we have had the pleasure of promoting internationally, and with recent collaborations with artists from the northern hemisphere who are presenting themselves for the first time in the regional art scene.
