Fordistas is pleased to present Materia Prima, a collaborative exhibition by Argentine artists Pastel and Elian at the Yo♥305 Gallery in Wynwood. The Opening Night reception is slated for Thursday July 10, 2014.

In Materia Prima, Pastel and Elian explore the true meaning of collaboration by using individual aesthetics to find points of intersection in their work. While Pastel uses symbolism to tell the story of a 19th century battle and its socio-political tensions, Elian explores the geometric properties of art by analyzing form through the use of primary colors and space.

By definition, “materia prima” are raw elements taken from nature that are later transformed into consumer goods. 

“With elements I talk about stories and I talk about cultures.” – Pastel

During the joint exhibition, a special, limited-edition quantity of hand printed scarves by the artists will be made available for purchase. Ranging from $40-$100 (at buyer’s discretion), the complete proceeds will benefit a South Florida Ford linked charitable cause.
