Turoso soils an exhibition by Bogota’s Carlos Bonil will be available until November 28 in the parking lot of the Miguel Urrutia Museum of Art (MAMU) as part of the call for the X Luis Caballero Prize and the nomination phase of the District Stimulus Program 2018 .
Carlos Bonil, graduated from the National University of Colombia, is a plastic artist who has directed his work to musical and sound exploration through the mixing or inclusion of plastic arts.
Turbid soil, the exhibition presented at the MAMU, presents a series of sculptural pieces made in gift paper, cardboard, rivets, circuits and plastic. All these recycled elements are part of Bonil’s commitment to reaffirm the identity of his art with sound experiences and with a message of preservation of the environment that is implicit in the reuse of solid waste.
The work, which was selected among 37 samples that were nominated in the X Luis Caballero Prize, is also part of a series of exhibitions that are being presented at the Museum of Modern Art of Bogotá, the Santa Clara Museum, the Monument to the Heroes and the new Santa Fe Gallery.
The District Institute of the Arts (Idartes) is responsible for organizing the Luis Caballero Prize, a proposal that seeks to promote medium-sized artists who are over 35 years old. The participants of this initiative present a proposal for artistic intervention in a space where they must meet the social, historical and architectural qualities of the selected places.
