Running with Bonnie & Clyde

Exhibition Type
Temporary Exhibition
4 Sep 2009
— 31 Mar 2010

The artist João Louro presents at the Museu do Caramulo the exhibition “Running with Bonnie & Clyde” with screen prints on 400 grs Arches paper.

These screen prints portray the violent capture of the outlaw couple by the American police, and they have been transformed and shot at by the artist himself using guns of various calibres.

The exhibition opened at the Caramulo Motorfestival 2009 and will run until March 31 2010.

A descendant of conceptual and minimal art, João Louro’s body of work encompasses painting, sculpture, photography and video. The main themes of his oeuvre are the reorganisation of the visual universe and the reflection on the role of language in its various aspects and potential.

His work is represented in major public and private collections such as the Fundación Arco, Madrid, The Margulies Collection, Miami and the Museu de Serralves, Oporto.
