Continuum Reception Held at Palitz Gallery in Lubin House
January 27, 2017
The selection of works shown in the Continuum exhibition include artists from Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, England, Germany, Israel, South Korea, Puerto Rico, Russia, the Unites States, and Uruguay. “By revisiting its past, Point of Contact also looks toward its future, refining its vision and turning each new encounter into an experimentation with unlimited insights,” says managing director Miranda Traudt.
“The Point of Contact Gallery collection crosses visual and verbal, geographic and artistic boundaries, evolving year-after year, contributing to the conversation on contemporary art in today’s rapidly changing environment,” says Ana Tiscornia, Art Editor for Point of Contact. “It does not respond to the usual criteria of art collections, such as periods, geographies, or artistic tendencies, but rather it unites a well-defined cultural calling, an almost romantic faith in the aesthetic experience as our main redeemer.”
“Throughout its history Point of Contact’s mission has been to form inspired communities,” says Traudt. “To innovate through artistic concepts that may resonate locally and globally; to work expansively where intellectual and geographic boundaries are concerned, and to share the experience.”
Founded in 1975 by Pedro Cuperman, Point of Contact began as an editorial project dedicated to publishing creative scholarship and original works of art side-by-side, thus providing a cross disciplinary space for writers, scholars, and visual artists. In 2005, Point of Contact expanded its vision with the opening of a gallery dedicated to the exploration of contemporary verbal and visual arts, with a strong focus on Latin America.
