MINUS SPACE is delighted to present the exhibition Julio Grinblatt: Cielito Lindo. This is the Argentine-born, Brooklyn-based artist’s first solo exhibition in New York and it will feature a suite of unique, large-scale C-print photographs depicting the clear blue sky.

An ongoing project, Grinblatt’s Cielito Lindo series stresses how aesthetic notions are generated in relation to the photographic apparatus, in particular the photographic printing process. To create this body of essentially monochromatic photographs, Grinblatt articulated the following four-step premise:

1. I took a photograph of a clear sky.

2. I sent the negative to a professional color lab.

3. I asked the printer to print a beautiful sky.

4. Repeat from 2.

Julio Grinblatt (b. 1960 in Buenos Aires, Argentina; lives Brooklyn, NY) has exhibited his work in solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally for the past two decades, including in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Spain, Belgium, Finland, Belgium, Italy, and the United States.

In 2001, Grinblatt mounted the solo exhibition Uses of Photography at the Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires (MAMBA) in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He has participated in group exhibitions at museums, such as MoMA PS1, El Museo del Barrio (both New York); Institute of Contemporary Art (Philadelphia, PA); Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art (Gainsville, FL); Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (Madrid, Spain); Museum of Fine Arts (Brussels, Belgium); Amos Anderson Art Museum (Helsinki, Finland); and Museo de Arte Zapopan (Guadalajara, Mexico), among others.

Grinblatt’s work is represented in collections worldwide, including the Museum of Fine Arts Houston (Houston, TX); Portland Art Museum (Portland, OR); Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art (Gainesville, FL); Light Work Permanent Collection (Syracuse, NY); Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires (both Buenos Aires, Argentina), and Museum of Modern Art (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil).

In 2012, Grinblatt co-curated the survey exhibition Notations: The John Cage Effect Today at Hunter College Times Square Gallery together with Joachim Pissarro, Bibi Calderaro, and Michelle Yun. The exhibition was discussed in-depth by writer Thomas Crow in Artforum’s Best of 2012 issue. Grinblatt is Adjunct Assistant Professor at Hunter College in New York, and he holds an MFA from Hunter College and BS from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel.


Now celebrating its 10th year, MINUS SPACE specializes in reductive abstract art on the international level. The gallery presents museum-quality solo and group exhibitions by pioneering emerging, established, and deceased artists at its Brooklyn gallery, as well as at other collaborating venues on the national and international levels.
