La Casa Encendida launches the new season with three exhibitions based on our continuous commitment to serving as a platform for promoting new voices through our annual contest Generación 2015, to presenting the work of international artists who have not yet been shown in Spain, as the latest artistic production of Neïl Beloufa; and employing the retrospective for the exploration in greater depth of the work of more renowned artists, such as the Colombian artist José Antonio Suárez Londoño.

Generación 2015
Generaciones, Fundación Montemadrid’s young art competition since 2002, aims to provide young artists with the tools they need for the production and promotion of their work. Generación 2015 presents ten projects produced for the occasion by the ten young artists chosen by a jury of prestigious experts. The ten artists selected for the 2015 edition are Elena Aitzkoa, Objetos nómadas [Nomadic Objects]; Cristina Garrido, #JWIITMTESDSA? (Just what it is that makes today’s exhibitions so different, so appealing?); Karlos Gil, -––––––¬˘; Laila and Nadia Hotait, La noche entre Alí y yo [The Night between Ali and I]; Daniel Jacoby, Jagata: Part I; Fermín Jiménez Landa, Acampada libre [Wild Camping]; Karlos Martinez B., Textile from Exile; Lucía Simón, Sin titulo-libretos [Untitled: Librettos]; Pep Vidal, Following the (Magnetic) North Pole; and Oriol Vilanova, Sin perder casi nada [Without Losing Hardly Anything].

Neïl Beloufa: Contando con la gente / Counting on people
In this first exhibition in Spain of Neïl Beloufa, produced by ICA, London, La Casa Encendida presents a series of new sculptures and video works, exhibited in architectural installations specifically designed to break the viewer’s conventional engagement with the screen. Through his audio-visual installations, Beloufa attempts to sever our conventional relationship with the screen and redirect the way in which we relate to the imaginary constructs of the digital and real world. The exhibition explores how we choose to communicate, interact and interpret the world since the advent of the digital era.

French-Algerian artist Neïl Beloufa was born in 1985 in Paris. He has had recent solo exhibitions at the Mendes Wood Gallery, Sao Paolo (2014); Fondation d’Entreprise Ricard, Paris (2014); the Hammer museum, Los Angeles (2013); and Kunstraum Innsbruck, Innsbruck, Austria (2012); Beloufa has received many other honours, most recently the Audi Talent Award, Paris (2011) and the Meurice Prize for contemporary art (2013).

José Antonio Suárez Londoño: Muestrario / Samples
This first institutional solo exhibition in Europe devoted to the Colombian artist José Antonio Suárez Londoño is a retrospective of his work since the 1970s. The title is not only a reference to the nature of the show, which features pieces of varying media and formats, but to the nature of the work itself, as the avid compiler and classifier that Suárez Londoño is. The exhibition will reflect the headlong rush and idea of continuity that underpins Suárez Londoño’s work—a relentless method of creating as an exceptional and moving practice in his unremitting stillness.

His work has been shown at 57th Venice Biennial (2013), The Drawing Center New York (2012) and is included in MoMA collection and Patricia Phelps de Cisneros private collection, among others. Samples is a commission by La Casa Encendida in the context of ARCOColombia, in collaboration with MAMM, Medellín; and it will travel to CAPC, Bordeaux.
