Open Forum is proud to announce Reminiscencias Futuras, Paolo Salvador’s first exhibition in Germany opening on November 16th, 2019

The five paintings are paradoxes. Their perspective is flattened while their surface is layered, their composition loose yet labored. They are autobiographical but evoke, or better said, imply allegory. However the relationships between people and animals they depict are ambiguous and welcoming, rather than moralistic or altruistic.
Like the rest of us in contemporary life, the works exist in this state of flux and contradiction. They works tell an old tale in new language.

This exhibition is the culmination of a fall residency at Open Forum in Berlin.  Paolo Salvador (b. 1990 in Lima, Peru) lives and works in London and Lima. For inquiries and viewing appointments, please reach out to or
