Under the Same Sun: Art from Latin America Today

Museo Jumex Arte Contemporáneo

19 Nov 201507 Feb 2016

Under the Same Sun: Art from Latin America Today features recent acquisitions from the region for the collection of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York. Including drawing, installation, mixed media, painting, performance, sculpture, and video, it presents a wide range of approaches and aesthetics.

Demonstrating that Latin America cannot be understood as a single, homogeneous entity, the exhibition considers the diversity of artistic responses to shared realities molded by colonial and modern history, repressive governmental politics, economic crisis, and social inequality, as well as by periods of economic development and social progress. Despite financial growth and increased stability in most of the continent during the past decade, Latin America remains divided by class and ethnic dierence, and marked by political and economic upheaval. Under the Same Sun presents artworks that address the past and present of the region, allowing us to imagine other possible futures.

Organized by Pablo León de la Barra, Guggenheim UBS MAP Curator, Latin America, Under the Same Sun features works by 40 artists and collaborative duos from 15 countries. The artworks are organized around five themes: “Conceptualism and its Legacies”, “Tropicologies”, “Political Activism”, “Modernism and its Failures”, and “Participation/Emancipation”.
