Don Bergland is having an important major international solo invitational exhibition at the Contemporary Art Center (Centro de Arte Contemporáneo CAC) in Málaga, Spain.
The CAC is considered one of the most important contemporary art facilities in Europe, having hosted exhibitions by noted artists such as Damien Hirst, Gerhard Richter, Mark Ryden, Louise Bourgeois, Paul McCartney, Alex Katz, Miquel Barceló, Jack Pierson, Thomas Hirschhorn, Neo Rauch, and many more. Málaga is also the birthplace of Picasso.
Don's solo exhibition will be called, "The Silence of Eternity" and will consist of artwork featuring theatrical mannequin-like figures who posture in self-reflective attitudes of existential anxiety, stilled by the weight of an eternity that remains unknown and silent. The exhibition is scheduled to run at the CAC from June 18 to September 11, 2021.
The gallery space allotted to his show is very large and he has much work in front of him to get this exhibition prepared for the deadline. Although the exhibition is about 6 months away, Don's studio is now filled with experimental framing templates, stretched canvases and shipping crates. He is hoping that this major exhibition will provide a positive introduction to his work for European audiences.
