During the month of July, ‘ace will be hosting the exhibition Exercises, which includes 11 artists-students from the Smoje workshop. This exhibition will also provide the experience of putting together a collaboration between the Smoje´s workshop and the ´ace Foundation. Oscar (“Bear”) Smoje (picture) is a well known Argentine artist; being drawing, painting and small piece sculpture the means that he uses the most. The artist has also a lot of experience when it comes to cultural management, and he is currently the director of the National Exhibition Hall (former Palais de Glace).
Exercises (by Oscar Smoje)
“Every image includes a drawing. Even the act of imagining involves us to outline, contour, color, shade. As we learn to talk, draw, is in some sense, an act necessary and important, through which we learn to become independent and individualized by writing our name while interpreting ideas, signs and symbols. Drawing exercises are nothing more nor less than the ebb and flow of ideas, trial and error of our conformation as interpreters of a reality that we practice every day. This is the challenge that we propose in the workshop: testing the forms to shape an own world, intending learn to speak a language”. Oscar Smoje
