“Spots, Dots, Pips, Tiles” presents the game of domino in art

(New York, USA) Believed to have been born in China in the 12th century, the game of domino is the theme of the group show “Spots, Dots, Pips, Tiles”, which opened in the Hunter East Harlem Gallery in October last year. Very popular in the neighborhood of East Harlem, the ancient game is here used both as an aesthetic reference—the case, for example, of Hélio Oiticica or PIPA Prize 2010 nominee Erika Verzutti’s works being shown—and as a metaphor, capable of representing urgent and broad themes such as political struggles, religious beliefs, and racial stereotypes.

“Brasil, Beleza?!” offers a colorful insight into the vast land of Brazil through a selection of works

(The Hague, Netherlands) By employing various materials, forms and concepts, artists in the show discuss the fragility of a nation in constant flux, that perhaps now more than ever is being examined in the public eye as we continue to click away on our social media apps. Ultimately the exhibition makes a connection between the current economic and political instability, the preservation of modernism, and the beauty that characterize this country.


“Under the Same Sun: Art from Latin America Today” highlights recently acquired works by more than 20 artists

(London, UK) With a focus on work made by artists born after 1968, in addition to several early pioneers who were active internationally in the 1960s and ’70s, the exhibition examines a diversity of creative responses by artists to complex, shared realities that have been influenced by colonial and modern histories, repressive governments, economic crises, and social inequality, as well as by concurrent periods of regional economic wealth, development, and progress.
