MARC BADIA, EDU CARRILLO & FÁTIMA DE JUAN
04.22.2023 --- 05.20.2023
Lorin Gallery presents “Three Tenses of Contemporary '', a group exhibition with Marc Badia, Edu Carrillo, and Fátima de Juan in collaboration with L21 Gallery. On view from the 22nd of April to the 20th of May at Lorin Gallery’s downtown location, “Three Tenses of Contemporary '' presents a visual examination of the notion of being contemporary, whose meaning is in flux and constantly being reshaped by our intervention. Departing from and returning to the motifs ancient, classical but akin to our time, three participatory European artists compose with the symbols and visual languages specific to their culture, identities, and with a rhythm tuned to the singular pulse of the undefined time.
Born in 1984, Marc Badia now lives and works in Barcelona. He holds a degree in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona, where he studied a master’s degree in Artistic Production and Research, and is an exchange student at the Hochschule für bildende Künste Hamburg (HFBK Hamburg)
Marc Badia has exhibited at Centro del Carmen de Valencia (Valencia), Espositivo Mad (Ma- drid), Galería Fran Reus (Mallorca), La Capella (Barcelona), Fundación Arranz Bravo (Barcelona) and at Arco Madrid with the L21 gallery (Mallorca). He has held resi- dencies at the Free University of Tbilisi (Georgia), the DE Kaaij festival (Nijmegen, Holland) and Major 28 (Lleida).
