The Holy Corner exhibition in Guatemala

First shown to the public as part of the 35th Ljubljana Biennale of Graphic Arts, exhibition The Holy Corner, which was initially conceived as a portfolio of commissioned works that aimed to promote new networks of dialogue and collaboration, will be presented at La Nueva Fábrica with the intervention of Guatemalan artist Edgar Calel, from 16 March till 8 September 2024.

The Holy Corner presents a series of works that, transformed into offerings, form a symbolic altar on which we invoke the validity of fundamental ethical values, often understood as something outdated, in order to better face the challenges of our present and build new common futures.
