We will be showing work by Rachel Youn and Grace Weaver at ARCOmadrid, Spain’s International Contemporary Art Fair. Weaver's paintings and Youn's sculptures craft an intentional physicality. Imbuing the viewer with a sense of alienation and discomfort, they bleed and ache. 22.02.–26.02.2023
A new article on the work of Eli Cortiñas, written by Gillian Nicole Osborne for Berlin Art Link.

From all of us at Soy Capitán, we wish you a Happy New Year!
