EXHIBITION «ART AND DISSIDENCE IN TIMES OF REPRESSION AND LIBERATION»
“Art and dissidence in times of repression and liberation” is an exhibition that shows the revolutionary work of the artist Nazario Luque and demonstrates the continuity of the demands of the queer collective nowadays, fifty years after its beginnings.
Nazario Luque, known artistically as Nazario, was a prominent Spanish countercultural artist, comic artist and cartoonist born in 1944 in Castilleja del Campo, Seville. He is considered one of the pioneers in the artistic representation of themes related to homosexuality, sex and gender in cartoon format. His work, transgressive and provocative, challenged social norms and gave voice and visibility to the queer collective in an era marked by repression and sexual liberation. Nazario became a symbol of resistance and dissidence, and his artistic production continues to be relevant and current today, standing out for his ability to confront social and political issues from the margins.
The exhibition, which is commissioned by the students of the module Art Criticism and Dissemination of the Master in Management and Analysis of Artistic Heritage of the UAB, in collaboration with the artist himself, offers a re-reading of Nazario's career from the perspective of curators who, despite not having lived through the demands of the LGBTIQ+ collective in the last century, somehow feel represented. Through a chronological journey, from the Spanish Transition to the present day, the artist's work is contextualized within the situation of the LGBTIQ+ collective in Spain, transporting the public to the socio-political moment in which each piece exhibited was created in order to fully understand the transgressive nature of these works.
From his early works such as La piraña divina, to the iconic comic strips starring the emblematic Anarcoma in the magazine El Víbora, to his most recent lithographs and photographs of intimate and social themes, are some of the pieces that the public can enjoy in this exhibition, which establish the creation of a dialogue where work and artist merge into a single whole that breaks with established norms to make dissident identities visible.
“Art and dissidence in times of repression and liberation” is an opportunity to discover the work of a visionary artist and to reflect on the validity of queer demands in today's society.
