OPENING OF “ESTADO DE SILENCIO”, LESTER ALVAREZ’S SOLO SHOW

The next Friday, April 29th, at 7:00 pm, will be the opening of Lester Alvarez’s solo show “Estado de silencio” (State of Silence). It will take place on El Apartamento space. The exhibition –which will be composed by installation and painting–, is articulated as a kind of speech in three acts.

“Estado de silencio” is born from a call, a sort of invocation or nostalgia, to the untranslatable, to the hermetic and ritual, to the things that remain outside. Tired of dismantling and scrutiny at the hands of art criticism, the public and the gallery, Lester Alvarez restores, in a gesture of symbolic nature, an essential area of silence. Susan Sontag said that "speech closes off thought ", that’s why Lester prefers the silence, be open to the innermost mysteries of the work and let it be.
