On May 24 was opened the show Latin America 1960 – 2013 Photos + Texts, at the Museo Amparo, in Puebla. The exhibition, organized in collaboration with the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain (Paris), brings together 71 artists from 11 countries from Latin America, and has more than 400 works that reflect the diversity of visual languages employed since 1960 until today. During the tour we can see works by artists like Demian Ortega, or Regina Silveira, who take hold of the stereotypes commonly saddled Latin America in “To Be Continued … ” The show is divided into four thematic sections that create a dialogue between artists: Territories, Cities, Inform / Denounce and Memory and Identity. Along the exhibition, we can find works executed in a variety of media, including photography, collage, photomontage, screen printing, offset, performance and video. Latin America 1960 – 2013 Photos + Texts is curated by AÁngeles Alonso Espinosa, Hervé Chandes, Alexis Fabry, Isabelle Gaudefroy, Ilana Shamoon and Leanne Sacramone, together with the Institut des Hautes Études de l’ Amérique Latine (IHEAL). The exhibition was presented in Paris at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain. At the Museo Amparo will remain open until September 29.
We recommend you attend this spectacular show in a beautiful museum.
