(Auckland, New Zealand)
Auckland Art Gallery has been presenting, since 7th May until 18th September, the group show “Space to Dream” with brazilian artists Cinthia Marcelle, Jonathas de Andrade, Lenora de Barros, Maria Nepomuceno and Ronald Duarte.
Space to Dream is the first major exhibition in Australasia to introduce, in depth, the art of South America.
The exhibition reveals how South American artists see a social significance for their work and how as rebels and revolutionaries, dreamers and poets, they have challenged, embraced, explained or transformed their realities, lives, cultures and spaces from the 1960s to today.
Visit Space to Dream and experience the work of 41 artists and collectives, who include senior figures internationally recognised for their contribution to art as well as younger figures including Lygia Clark, Juan Fernando Herrán, Alfredo Jaar, Marcos Lopez, Ernesto Neto, Hélio Oiticia, Bernardo Oyarzún, Lotty Rosenfeld, Martín Sastre and many more.
Bringing together some of the most visually engaging painting, sculpture, photography, installation, film and performance from across six countries – Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia and Uruguay – Space to Dream includes major works and exciting new commissions.The exhibition has been developed by Chilean curator Beatriz Bustos Oyanedel and Auckland Art Gallery Principal Curator and Head of Programmes, Zara Stanhope and is accompanied by a significant visitor programme.
