Sueños Pospuestos | Mambo: Museum of Modern Art Bogotá, 2015
Since 1963, the Museum of Modern Art of Bogotá has worked to investigate, preserve and promote the understanding of the Collection and all the manifestations of modern and contemporary art in Colombia and internationally. It offers a pluricultural, dynamic and innovative space, which gives audiences a meaningful experience around the art world.
In addition to this, the museum has developed a strong learning department, working every day to bring the museum closer to bigger and diverse audiences, and promoting experimentation and understanding of the artistic practice.
”(…) The main idea behind these first geometric works of Maestro Riveros is reaching artistic purity through order, specificity, non-illusion and non-self-reference. Following his works, one by one, turns to to be a journey through the labyrinth of the human mind - it makes explicit the pleasure Maestro Riveros feels inventing new shapes and new compositions, reveals his limitless imagination and conveys a great intellectual and physical joy in the handling of materials. Although Maestro Riveros’ work obeys to an abstract sort of reasoning, one mustn’t forget that the Golden Ratio is a phenomenon found in nature, where it becomes evident in the petals of flowers, the distribution of leaves in a branch and the proportion between branches and trunk in a tree. Perhaps this is why Maestro Riveros takes such delicate care of nature around him, showing with pride the most peculiar leaves of the plants he cultivates. And perhaps this is the reason why his paintings, austere as they might be, always show a certain warmth, an attraction that prevents one from passing by - to de contrary, they ask for appreciation, a careful examination, they need time to operate in the mind.” Eduardo Serrano. Art critic and curator.
