The exhibition presents works by some of the most celebrated Latin-American artists working today, including Guillermo Kuitca (Argentina), Doris Salcedo (Colombia), Los Carpinteros (Cuba) and Vik Muniz (Brazil). The work of rapidly-emerging younger artists, such as María Fernanda Cardoso (Colombia), Nicola Costantino (Argentina) and Dario Escobar (Guatemala), is also featured. In addition to the works in the galleries, the exhibition will also include a number of off-site public works – in IMMA’s grounds and in a number of locations in Temple Bar – and a performance piece by Tania Bruguera (Cuba). A number of works in the exhibition have already been shown at Documenta 11, the 2005 Venice Biennale, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Barcelona, the Shanghai Art Museum and in other prestigious venues worldwide.
This is a substantial full-colour publication with a foreword by Enrique Juncosa, Director, IMMA, and Hans–Michael Herzog, Director of the Daros-Latinamerica collection with essays by Sebastián López and Eugenio Valdés Figueroa, curator and critic. The catalogue comes with an art historical description of the works in the exhibition authored by Herzog, López and Valdés Figueroa.
