Art 2017 My Top 10

In 2017, I had the opportunity to visit many art exhibitions in several countries. I came across a large number of artworks and I decided to share here my top 10 favourites. However, the experience of these works is impossible to convey through photographs. They are extremely engaging and unique in their materiality.

  1. Interesting choices. A lot of works with light (and I agree!) The lace seems very beautiful and with a meaning of connections between all people around the world. The work of Matylda Tracewska seems magic. Thanks for sharing, Marcelo.

    1. Thanks for your comment…
      Yes, light is very important in the resolution of many of these works. However, I don’t think that light is the main concern. For instance, what is great about Béla Tarr’s Installation is the wind, but photographs don’t show it. Cody Choi’s music selection is also what makes the work more interesting. Ultimately, without light there is no visual arts.
