Opening | “Under the same Sun: Art from Latin America Today”

(New York, USA)

Adriano Costa, Carla Zaccagnini, Erika Verzutti, Jonathas de Andrade, Runo Lagomarsino and Tamar Guimarães are currently on view at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum with the group exhibition “Under the same Sun: Art from Latin America Today”. After New York, the exhibition will travel to two additional venues.

Featuring nearly 50 works including installations, mixed-media works, paintings, photographs, sculptures, videos, and works on paper, “Under the Same Sun” surveys the most significant contemporary art practices in Latin America today. The artworks are organised according to the following themes: “Conceptualism and its legacies”, “Tropicologies”, “Political Activism”, “Modernism and its failures” and “Participation/Emancipation”.

The exhibition examines the diversity of today’s creative responses to complex shared realities, which 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. Despite financial growth and increased stability in most of the continent over the past decade, it remains divided by social and ethnic differences and marked by political and economic shifts. León de la Barra’s exhibition presents artistic responses to the past and present that are inscribed within these contexts, and explores the possibility of the construction of alternative futures.
