This 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.
