Period:DEC 25th (Fri.) 2009- JAN 26th (Tue.)2010
Place:PROMO-ARTE GALLERY 2F
Organized by:PROMO-ARTE
 
 

Promo-Arte Gallery will be opening an exhibition titled "Latin American Contemporary Art TODAY" presenting works of 39 contemporary artists from Latin America and the Caribbeans.
We are positive that you will appreciate and feel the real Latin American society harmonized in different races, where its people live with very strong personalities and humanism that you will hardly forget once you experience them. We are also happy to give you the opportunity to feel their soul generated by complicated backgrounds of history and multifarious climates, their strong life force expressed on canvas and three-dimensional works and their high qualities.
PROMO-ARTE Director    

"Floating in the atmosphere: There is a connection between Latin America and Japan through the contemporary art, that's for sure.
Primitiveness and traditions, progress and ultra modern technology, extremes put together and mixed. Artistic contamination between both continents: All their connection combine one with the other, make the connection possible between Japan and Latin America.
The design of tropical fruits and people with black skin - painted in silk or Nepal's paper - like Carlos Estevez does in his works - demonstrate how one deeply rooted Latin American artist can use elements from so far away, like Nepal's paper or silk in his works.
The Juan Bernal's watercolours and marvellous collage, remind us of fantastic Japan and of Ikebara's flower arrangements.....
The works of Abel Barroso - a computer made in wood, like a toy - not only dramatize Cuba's problems and contraddictions. They also remind us of the advenirism and at the same time, the primitiveness that we can experiment simultaneously in Japan and in the magnificent Japanese handwork expertise.
Last but not least, Gustavo Tabares' work, with its colorful abstraction - applying one layer of colour upon the other - give us the sense of time that goes by.
Other artists of the exhibition are more rooted in Latin America problems, like the colourful lithographs of Ana Mercedes Hoyos , wood engraving of Julio Cesar Pena, depicting people with corpses and faces, reminding us - in case it is necessary - that hunger in the continent is far from being solved."
