4th Poly/Graphic Triennial San Juan: Latin America and the Caribbean
Displaced Images/Images in Space
24th October 2015 - 27th February 2016
Curated by Gerardo Mosquera, Alexia Tala, Vanessa Hernandez
Arsenal de la Marina Española, San Juan
The 4th Poly/Graphic Triennial will examine the formal, methodological and conceptual shifts and hybridizations of the graphic image across different fields, media, backgrounds, habits, and senses, as well as its projection into three-dimensional space. The works chosen for exhibition will manifest the expanded, instrumental, and decentralized nature of contemporary graphic arts—a decentralization that might lead us to speak of a post-graphic art. While the aim of the Triennial is to present the “poly”-faceted explosion in the graphic arts today, it will also include examples of traditional printmaking articulated in an expanded field.

Geographies. Representations of the world between art and design
Edited by Beppe Finessi, Corriani Edizioni
Inventario and the Museo Poldi Pezzoli return to ponder on a specific argument, between design and the visual arts. A reflection that on this occasion revolves around the theme of geographic representation, of cartography, of the graphic depiction (and not just that) of the planet, maps and globes. Representations of the world between art and design gathers objects created by some of the protagonists of the international design scene along with the works of visual artists who have worked on the “cartographic” story.

The devil is in the details, KaBe Contemporary, Miami
17 September  - 20 November 2015
Curated by Jesus Fuenmayor
The title of the exhibition “The Devil is in the details” pretends to point towards the details’ appearances in a work of art that unexpectedly allow viewers to comprehend the work (and even history) in a different way, even when this reading betrays our expectations or completely twists a work’s initial intention. Instead of just speaking about how important the use of historiography is for this group of artists, the show draws attention to what Roland Barthes used to call the “Punctum.” That is, that detail in an image (or work) that escapes its own structure, shooting out like an “arrow” towards the viewer.
The artists selected for this exhibition have turned to the representation of history not just as material itself but also as means by which to criticize how history is constructed. They are not just interested in the past tense or simply reviving archival strategies, but in putting the past in relation to the present and the future, creating overlapping temporalities that bring disparate moments together.
Artists: Iván Argote, Arocha + Schraenen, Lothar Baumgarten, Matthew Buckingham, Elena Damiani, Adler Guerrier, Jorge Pedro Núñez, Edgar Orlaineta, Laercio Redondo, Matheus Rocha Pitta, Sergio Vega
A 200 pages, black and white publication of the same title will be published with the exhibition.

Testigos: un catálogo de fragmentos / Sediments: an assemblage of remains
5th September 2015 – 7th February 2016
MUAC Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo
In coproduction with the Museo Amparo, Puebla
Curated by Cecilia Delgado y Amanda de la Garza
Elena Damiani’s proposal is part of the curatorial program Intemperie Sur, which departs from the notion of interstice as a gap between two parts of the same body. The installation Testigos: un catálogo de fragmentos is presented as a space-time interlude.  The project is composed by two travertine sculptures that draw upon the discontinuous nature of time and the emergence of liminal spaces within it. Damiani reveals the interstices that the material itself contains. These fissures -hiatuses in the geological time- are the critical points of interest, as they represent evidence of break, outflow and discordance, subtle factors that point the existence of a 'lost time'.

Vienna Biennale 2015 Ideas for Change | Future Light, MAK Museum
11th June 2015 - 4th October 2015
Opening: 11th June 2015
Curator: Maria Lind, Director, Tensta Konsthall, Stockholm
Why is it that some features of the old Enlightenment have crept back and are now being revisited in art, activism, and theory? In radically mutated forms three strands of thought and action have crystallized within the framework of Future Light: non-penetrating light, the individual subject as reworked by the politics of queer feminism and its polymorph desires, and the public sphere reconceived through and as commons and commoning. Each strand takes shape in a different institutional and spatial setting, accompanied by a reader entitled Future Light and the mini-symposium Politics of Shine. As part of Future Light the MAK presents the group exhibition Escaping Transparency.
Artists: Pablo Accinelli, Doug Ashford, Claire Barclay, Rana Begum, Elena Damiani, Shezad Dawood, Annika Eriksson, Matias Faldbakken, Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, Ane Hjort Guttu, Tom Holert, Philippe Parreno, Amalia Pica, Bik Van der Pol, Yelena Popova, Walid Raad, Haegue Yang

56th International Art Exhibition, All the World's Futures, Venice Biennale
9th May - 22nd November 2015
Previews: 6th-8th May 2015
Curated by Okwui Enwezor
Rather than one overarching theme that gathers and encapsulates diverse forms and practices into one unified field of vision, All the World’s Futures is informed by a layer of intersecting Filters. These Filters are a constellation of parameters that circumscribe multiple ideas, which will be touched upon to both imagine and realize a diversity of practices. In 2015, the 56th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia will employ the historical trajectory of the Biennale itself, over the course of its one hundred and twenty years existence, as a Filter through which to reflect on both the current “state of things” and the “appearance of things”. All the World’s Futures will take the present “state of things” as the ground for its dense, restless, and exploratory project that will be located in a dialectical field of references and artistic disciplines. The principal question the exhibition will pose is this: How can artists, thinkers, writers, composers, choreographers, singers, and musicians, through images, objects, words, movement, actions, lyrics, sound bring together publics in acts of looking, listening, responding, engaging, speaking in order to make sense of the current upheaval? What material, symbolic or aesthetic, political or social acts will be produced in this dialectical field of references to give shape to an exhibition which refuses confinement within the boundaries of conventional display models? In All the World’s Futures the curator himself, along with artists, activists, the public, and contributors of all kinds will appear as the central protagonists in the open orchestration of the project.

THEOREM, You Simply Destroy the Image I Always Had of Myself, Mana Contemporary, New Jersey
3rd May – 1st August 2015
Public reception: Sunday 3rd May 2015 from 1pm - 6pm
Curated by renowned curator and art critic Octavio Zaya, Theorem presents large-scale installation, sculpture, video art, and photography by 30 international artists. Several artists from far-flung locations such as Peru, Brazil, and Norway, are traveling to Mana to create their installations on-site. The artists address the hypothetical question ‘what if?’ – as inspired by Pier Paolo Pasolini’s 1968 film Teorema – contemplating a world turned upside-down, where social tensions can be amplified to the point of poetic subversion, achieving possible transcendence.
Artists: Miguel Andrade Valdez, Julieta Aranda, Kader Attia, Marlon de Azambuja, Elena Bajo, Otto Berchem, Monika Bravo, Fernando Bryce, Marìa Magdalena Campos-Pons, Heman Chong, Elena Damiani, Aleksandar Duravcevic, Radames "Juni" Figueroa, Nicole Franchy, Richard Garet, Kendell Geers, Pedro Gómez-Egaña, Lucia Koch, Annette Lemieux, Ramón Miranda Beltrán, Warren Neidich, Jo Ractliffe, Rivka Rinn, Santiago Roose, Susan Siegel, DM Simons, Milagros de la Torre, Sergio Vega, Antonio Vega Macotela and Zoé T.

AKAKOR, Baró Galeria, Sao Paulo
9th April - 23rd May 2015
Curated by Kiki Mazzucchelli and Maria do Carmo M.P. de Pontes
Artists: Agnieszka Kurant, David Lamelas, Elena Damiani, Felipe Cohen, Felipe Ehrenberg, Francis Alÿs, Frank & Robbert, Robbert & Frank, João Maria Gusmão + Pedro Paiva, John Smith, Luis Ospina, Marcius Galan, Martin Creed, Nelson Leirner, Pilvi Takala, Raphael Hefti, Stefan Burger, among others.
The exhibition Akakor looks at acts of charlatanism within the artistic realm. The curators are investigating methods employed by artists to deceive, delude, cheat and con their viewers, making use of such strategies both formally and conceptually in their work. By choosing the charlatan (namely ‘a person who pretends or claims to have more knowledge or skills than he or she possesses; quack’ [via dictionary.com]) as the hero of the show, the curators aim to incite reflection on a subject that is not only pertinent to art, but urgent to society. Charlatans, we know, are everywhere.

Siempre el Horizonte, Galeria Max Estrella, Madrid
31st January – 18th March 2015
Opening: January 31, 2015 12:00pm
The horizon is a perceptual phenomenon whose presence only exists through the gaze. It occurs in an intangible space, in an ever-changing, unattainable limit. For this reason, this dynamic space becomes a symbol of consciousness; a metaphor for the threshold of the visible, the comprehensible, and of possibility.
The group exhibition curated by Iciar Sagarminaga, intends to expand the notion of the contemporary landscape. Its contemplation is the axis linking the work of the five guest artists: Felipe Arturo, Leyla Cárdenas, Elena Damiani, Miler Lagos and Sara Ramo. Through various media—sculpture, site-specific installation, photography, collage, video—the show offers an experience in the space that addresses a broader view of the landscape. By changing the framework through which urban, wild, archaeological, domestic and agricultural territories are considered, the experience of place and time also shift. Perceptions of the environment, the intimate space and present-continuous expand.

Peruvian Artist Elena Damiani Wins Installation Project at Americas Society
New York, November 21, 2014
Americas Society will commission Peruvian artist Elena Damiani to create a permanent installation for the David Rockefeller Atrium at its New York headquarters.
Damiani’s installation was the winner of a commission that received applications from 17 different Latin American artists. Four participants—Esvin Alarcón Lam (Guatemala), Elena Damiani (Peru), Marcius Galan (Brazil), and Jorge Pedro Núñez (Venezuela)—were the selected finalists. The proposals of these four artists are currently on view through December 13 at the Americas Society Art Gallery exhibition Spatial Acts.
"Elena Damiani has a sharp understanding of the space and the institution’s mission as a global platform for the arts and culture of the Americas," says Americas Society Chief Curator and Visual Arts Director Gabriela Rangel. Damiani conceived an encased structure of translucent prints in high tempered glass that will present satellite views of Mount Chimborazo, the highest peak above the equator. For the artist, these images and their visual narrative will allow the public to delve into notions of mobilization, displacement, expansion, and exploration.

Spatial Acts features works by artists Esvin Alarcón Lam (Guatemala), Elena Damiani (Peru), Marcius Galan (Brazil), and Jorge Pedro Núñez (Venezuela).

Solo Projects ArtRIO
10th – 14th September, 2014
Concreto/concreto Plano Piloto
Curated by Julieta Gonzalez y Pablo León de la Barra
Pablo León de la Barra and Julieta González are once again organizing the Solo Projects at the upcoming Art Rio this year.  Each year, Pablo and Julieta have presented the works of artists in a format of a thematic group exhibition rather than the more conventional art fair display of works in individual booths. In keeping with the curators’ continued interest in engaging aspects of Brazilian history through a thematic narrative for each edition of the Solo Projects, this year’s project, entitled Concreto/concreto, is situated in the convergence of architecture and poetry as cornerstones of the Brazilian modernist utopia, as an important point of reference for artists working today.

8th May - 19th July 2014
Curated by Jacopo Crivelli Visconti
Armando Andrade Tudela, Alejandro Cesarco, Elena Damiani, Clara Ianni, Runo Lagomarsino, Mateo Lopez, Felipe Mujica, Laercio Redondo
Francesca Minini is glad to announce Idea of Fracture, second appointment with OPINIONE LATINA, a new stage of a journey dedicated to Latin America contemporary art. The idea of fracture, of violence often invisible, which lies beneath the creation of utopian, spectacular and charming architecture, forms, in a certain sense is the core of the exhibition. The suggestion Modernist architecture (also linked to the construction of Brasilia) is outstanding, traceable in works in which the formal beauty hides references to the violence of colonization.

9TH BIENAL DO MERCOSUL, PORTO ALEGRE
13th September - 10th November 2013
Weather Permitting
The promises of the 9th Bienal do Mercosul l Porto Alegre are to identify, propose and repurpose changing belief systems and appraisals of experimentation and innovation. It intends to raise ontological and technological questions through artistic practice, object making and nodes of experience. This edition of the biennial can be considered an environment in which to encounter natural resources and material culture in a new light, and to speculate on the bases that have marked distinctions between discovery and invention, as well as the values of both sustainability and entropy. The 9th Bienal do Mercosul | Porto Alegre is curated in three components: the exhibition Portals, Forecasts and Monotypes including existing and new work, projects created through collaborative commissions, performances and screenings; the initiative “Island Sessions,” involving field trips, discussions and an online publication, and a five-month art pedagogy program, “Cloud Formations,” designed for teachers, mediators, and the curious.

CYCLORAMA
Museo Tamayo, Mexico City
9th May - 8th September 2013
Group show curated by Andrea Torreblanca
Salvatore Arancio, Elena Damiani, Haris Epaminonda, Cyprien Gaillard, Matts Leiderstam
Cyclorama is an exhibition that looks into the practice of five artists interested in landscape and history as forms of representation and mediation. Through the appropriation of archives, photographs and old prints or the reconstruction of legendary histories, Matts Leiderstam, Salvatore Arancio, Elena Damiani, Cyprien Gaillard and Haris Epaminonda look into the past in a kind of fetishistic archeology. However, their interest in recording, restoring and reconfiguring the past is never fully explicit, but rather halfway between the myth and the ability to create various narratives. Cyclorama takes as a point of departure the panoramas invented by Irish painter Robert Barker with the intention to bring back the notion of perception and knowledge through ways of looking. The "panorama" as a mass medium that gave a large audience the possibility to experience other places (more often landscapes) is an idea that dislocates the modern subject before cinema was even invented. Thus, the concept of landscape is crucial in this exhibition in relation to the turn of the XVII and XVIII centuries and its relationship on how this past gaze is confronted today.
