This publication accompanies Arturo Herrera's fourth exhibition at Thomas Dane Gallery, From This Day Forward. The exhibition brings together a body of work created as an homage to collage, approximately a hundred years on from the practice's ostensible inception. Herrera continues his examination of modernist legacies and visual culture with a group of new works alongside immersive wall painting and bookmaking. Throughout his career collage has always enabled Herrera to layer and compose raw material and fragments as though mirroring his own passion for music and musicality, allowing works to achieve real fluidity of form. Herrera draws particular attention to modernism, re-reading its vernacular interpretations and historical epochs particularly across South America, addressing the movement's experiments and sensorial qualities.
The publication features an essay by Scott Roben.
