MoMa announces major exhibition of contemporary latin-American artists
The Museum of Modern Art has announ-ced a major exhibition that will gather approximately 65 works by Latin American artists who, over the last four decades, have been looking at history as the source material for new work. On view from April 30 through September 9, 2023, in the third-floor Robert B. Menschel Galleries, this exhibition will explore a transformative group of works, primarily from the 21st century, which were donated by the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros in 2018. Videos, photographs, paintings, and sculptures will be presented in dialogue with MoMA’s extensive Latin American collection, recent acquisitions, a new commission, and select loans.
This presentation will feature works by approximately 40 artists from different generations working across Latin America over the last four decades, including Alejandro Cesarco (Uru-guay), Regina José Ga-lindo (Guatemala), Mario García Torres (Mexico), Leandro Katz (Argentina), Suwon Lee (Venezuela), Gilda Mantilla (Peru) and Raimond Chaves (Co-lombia), Cildo Meireles (Brazil), Rosângela Ren-nó (Brazil), Mauro Restiffe (Brazil), and José Alejandro Restrepo (Colombia), among others.
This exhibition is organized by Inés Katzenstein, Curator of Latin American Art and Director of the Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Research Institute for the Study of Art from Latin America; with Julia Detchon, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Drawings and Prints.
