Rebeca Romero at Bloomberg New Contemporaries
24 Sep 2021 - 22 Feb 2022|
Spanish-Peruvian artist Rebeca Romero will be participating in this year’s edition of Bloomberg New Contemporaries. Romero’s practice explores the connections between technology and an all too often imposed Western vision of history. Through a range of media – including sculpture, image manipulation, performance and video – she approaches concepts of diasporic identity, truth, fiction and their relationship to the digital age. The recent inclusion of new, disruptive technologies into her work, such as 3D scanning and printing, raises further questions surrounding production, automation and processes of exchange. Overall, Romero seeks to question ideas and practices of history-making, representation, appropriation and authorship.
New Contemporaries is the leading organisation supporting emergent art practice from the UK’s established and alternative art programmes. Since 1949 htey have consistently supported contemporary visual artists to successfully transition from education into professional practice, primarily by means of an annual, nationally touring exhibition.
