This event has ended.

For over three decades, Chus Burés has been collaborating with artists, filmmakers, fashion designers, and others on the creation of wearable artworks. In these works, Burés brings to life, in physical form, the dialogues and the encounters of different aesthetic ideas.

Trained in interior design in Spain, Burés has always understood body language and body ornaments as a means of cultural expression. In his work, Burés embraces unconventional materials and experimental designs that translate each individual collaboration. This exhibition is focused on his work created with major Latin American artists, revealing different aspects of their practices.

Chus Burés collaberators include Antonio Asís, Tony Bechara, Carlos Cruz-Díez, Sérvulo Esmeraldo, Horacio García Rossi, Carmen Herrera, Alexis Leyva Machado o Kcho, Julio Le Parc, Macaparana, Marie Orensanz, César Paternosto, Jesús Rafael Soto, and Luis Tomasello.
