Allegro Galería is proud to present “Andamiajes” (“Scaffoldings”), an exhibition of paintings, drawings and mixed media works by Gustavo Acosta, Luis Cruz Azaceta, Carlos Estévez, Jaime Franco and Pancho Quilici.

From the epic and often three dimensional cosmos of Pancho Quilici’s works, to the intimate metaphysical renderings of Estévez precarious life balances; from Acosta’s landscapes, suspended in time, whose atmospheres of pending doom lure the observer, to Jaime Franco’s powerful abstractions that seem like tentative markings etched in time; in each of the Museum Plans of the great Luis Cruz Azaceta, serious, erotic, cultural containers full of possibilities, Andamiajes is a show about the architecture of existence.

Their works are in the permanent collections of, among others, the Metropolitan Museum of Art (NY), the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Smithsonian Institution, New York, the Whitney Museum of Art, New York; Museo Nacional de Cuba, Centro Wilfredo Lam, Fort Lauderdale Art Museum, Lowe Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Miami (MoCA), Teatro Nacional de Cuba, MOLAA (Museum of Latin American Art of Long Beach, Ca), Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo (BID), el Museo de Arte Moderno de Bogotá, Museo de Arte Moderno, La Tertulia (Cali), Biblioteca Luis Ángel Arango (Bogotá), Museo Universidad Nacional (Bogotá), Colección Casa de las Américas (Cuba), Kunst Forum Ludwig, Germany, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Caracas, Galería de Arte Nacional de Caracas.

Based in Panama, Allegro Gallery specializes in Latin American Contemporary Art.
