Horacio Zabala: La pureza está en la mezcla / Purity Is in the Mix, is a retrospective exhibition curated by Rodrigo Alonso for the Colección de Arte Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat in Buenos Aires. It is open to the public until July and it will travel to the Phoenix art Museum to inaugurate in October and will be on public view until March of 2017.
The exhibitions is not organized chronologically, but it moves dialectically across time to demonstrate how Zabala has explored some ideas and forms of abstraction since the early 1970s to today. Constant areas of investigation are the monochrome and the use of mathematical and and punctuation symbols which create a tension between the color planes and the wall. Also a singular form of criticality and irony is present in much of his work, ranging from the political and the everyday in the global world.
