Clotilde Jiménez on the Cover

Joshua Bennett, Art in America

We are beyond delighted to share Clotilde Jiménez's work has been selected as the cover for the September/October issue of Art in America "Realism Today: Global Artists, New Realities."

 

Included in the issue is an interview between Clotilde, and author/professor Joshua Bennett.

 

"In a moment indelibly shaped by a wide range of black visual artists working across medium - Jiménez is a sculptor, painter, and collagist - his oeuvre stands out for both its conceptual daring and striking consistency. The animating questions of his work are both ancient and right on time. He is a joy to talk to and speaks about bodybuilding with the same facility and grace that brings to a conversation about his art practice. He is a man in love with what the poet Adam Zagajewski once called the mutilated world. Against a landscape marred by violence and unremitting constraingt, he dars to assert intimacy, pleasure, extravegance in the midst."
