Jaime Pitarch opening at SBG November 9th


The gallery is closed this week and next week for the installation of 'beautiful unglittering things', our second solo exhibition by Barcelona-based artist Jaime Pitarch.

Pitarch's work has included sculpture, drawing, video and performance. Often using humble everyday objects such as a guitar, a chair, and household and consumer products, the artist employs inventive and witty strategies of displacement, recontextualization, and visual punning to peel away at their routine uses and meanings, posing what The Village Voice (writing about his 2006 solo show at the gallery) has called a series of "exquisite conundrums".

Read more about the exhibition here and Jamie's work here, and we look forward to seeing you at the exhibition opening night, Monday November 9th, 6-8pm.
