PLAYERS – TERE SEGOVIA 06/06-15/06

Bate Social Store presents Players, a solo exhibition of the artist Tere Segovia in collaboration with emerging curator Antonia Mejía. Teresa’s approach to art comes from decontextualization, appropriation, and contemporary collective imaginary. She dives into our way of living with images and her work finds a way of distorting concepts of traditional beauty through irony.

Players seeks to exaggerate our disconnection with art. Teresa uses the game as an everyday tool to question the innocence of images. At the same time the exhibition’s purpose is to prevent this disconnection by inviting the spectators to have an active role in the exposition/game.

JUAN MARTÍN 09/05 -18 / 05

JUAN MARTÍN 09/05 -18 / 05

Bate Social Store is proud to present ‘Throwing a stone on the floor would fail’, the first solo exhibition in Madrid by artist Juan Martín.
Having completed his studies at the Royal Drawing School, London, England, the artist is forging an artistic path that combines traditional practices with a contemporary approach.
The exhibition, organised organically over a short period of time, presents a new series created solely for this occasion during his residency at ‘Dumfries House’ Ayrshire, Scotland and in his studio in London, with a total of 9 canvases, a selection of which will be exhibited during the second week of May in Madrid.
Distinctive in its combination of materials and technique, this series uses jute as a support, the artist achieving a characteristic green that dominates all his works, obtained through a previous pigmented primer, infusing the pieces with an atmosphere of optimism and the possibility of change.
In popular culture, this colour has been commonly used to convey a sense of calm and tranquillity, but can also have negative connotations to explore themes of competition, rivalry or unfulfilled desire. Experimenting with the airbrush, Juan has found in it a new tool for expression, placing himself between drawing and painting, exploring the relationship between classical and contemporary culture.

The sketches are fundamental, serving as the basis on which he builds compositions based on his thoughts and ideas.
and ideas. His drive with constant evolution is reflected in each work, seeking to capture moments between before and after, between today and tomorrow, between what was and what will be.
‘Throwing a stone on the ground, it would fail’, encapsulates the essence, exploring the idea that even simple actions can lead to unexpected results, challenging the viewer’s perceptions, inviting the audience to explore the space between-moments, where uncertainty and imperfection are transformed into beauty and violence.
But this one goes through the hole, to calibrate in round and deep the qualities of impact and the world, which opens inwards and outwards’.

AGNÈS presents: ‘DE VITA BEATA’ an art exhibition in the centre of Madrid.
The art label AGNÈS presents its new art exhibition entitled ‘DE VITA BEATA’, by the artist Carle Naide. The opening of the exhibition will take place on the 29th of February, at 19:00 hours, in the Bate Social Store, located in the emblematic district of the letters in Madrid.
The exhibition will be attended by the artist Carle Naide (Madrid, 1994) who has emerged as one of the most promising exponents of the emerging art scene in the city. For Carle, art is conceived as a means of establishing meaningful connections. His work, characterised by its elegance and subtlety, offers a unique exploration of art without an artist. Through oil painting, he does the work of a visual archaeologist, rescuing the richness of the past and fusing it with the contemporary vision of the present, thus projecting a glimpse into the future.

IED PRESENTS: MIGUEL VIDES

18/01 – 25/01

Directed by local designers Lucas Criado & Andrea López, Italian Insituto Europeo di Design presents at Bate Social Store the work of the artist Miguel Vides, hosted and produced by students.
An exhibition of works made between 2022 and 2023. The central piece and inspiration for the exhibition is the Egg, which not only appears as a symbol but also serves as a poster present in this exhibition, being, on many occasions, the starting point for several of the works presented. The space opens up like the inside of an egg, showing a varied work where graphic design, photography and drawing enter into conversation. The common denominator of these pieces is universal icons such as eggs, water, birds or frozen lemons. All this wrapped in a language close to pop, designed to connect with everyone.

Presented by Insituto Europeo di Design Madrid.

Andrés Aparicio “CINCO MINUTOS Y VUELVO” 16/11 – 02/12

Andrés Aparicio “CINCO MINUTOS Y VUELVO” 16/11 – 02/12

Solo exhibition of the Sevillian artist Andrés Aparicio, exclusively for Bate Social Store.

Andrés Aparicio was born in Villarasa in 1989 (Huelva). At the age of twenty-seven he starts studying Fine Arts at the University of Seville. In 2019 he travels to Palermo, where he discovers his ingenuity and spontaneity, his bright and contrasting colours, and where he gives himself to a free interpretation of everything he observes. It was in Palermo that his teachers dubbed him “Andrea Paricio”, a pictorial continuation of Andrea Dimarco, an exponent of the New Italian Figuration, both characterised by a playful language, which refers to an imagery inspired by everyday life and its fatal counterpart: oblivion, expiration, disuse.
Andrés being the son of craftsmen, his painting has a strong awareness of the work itself. This is reflected in the link between the hand and the head, in the bond between inherited tradition and the capacity to innovate, in the play with its limits. “I play with painting as my father measures and works with wood or as my mother draws a pattern on a canvas. The important thing is to build while understanding its context so that what is created coexists in unison”.

In the proposal CINCO MINUTOS Y VUELVO, Andrés shows the importance of context in his work. He generates physical paths that place the spectator in the right circumstance to understand from where and for what the artist creates. And he plays with it – with the work – as cities play with signs. It is, then, the spectator who will have to appropriate the signs to reveal the way back home. In this sense, the signs themselves are unimportant: it is the path that opens up with them that matters, and the memories that settle in our memory.
The trip to Palermo will allow Aparicio the chance contemplation of a large red tarpaulin, unfurled every morning by the market workers; a tarpaulin without any aesthetic pretensions, but of a profound involuntary beauty, which Aparicio will paint repeatedly in order to preserve and remember it in the greatest detail. Like a love letter to a memory.

In a society where the life of things is volatile, Andrés’s works place us in an arid space, made up of multiple premises that are closed – rented – closed again. In this continuous cycle of uninhabitability and emptiness, movement and supply are but hasty masks of nothingness. This state of restlessness could lead us towards a sense of nothingness. Surprisingly, however, at the end of the street, there is an old stall that remains open. In this corner, we find a glimmer of hope to cling to and feel that we belong. It is a place where we can be and, consequently, remember.
