Group show: Ana Mendieta in 'Modern Roots: A Survey of Latin American Art from the Collection', Weatherspoon Art Museum, North Carolina

13 October - 23 December 2018


In celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month (15 September - 15 October), Weatherspoon Art Museum will showcase objects from its collection by modern and contemporary artists hailing from the diverse Latin American cultures of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Uruguay.

 

The exhibition will focus on both figurative traditions and innovative explorations of abstraction, with surreal motifs and conceptual considerations rounding out the overview. Artists include those well known in the history of art, such as Roberto Matta-Echaurren, Alfredo Jaar, Ana Mendieta, Beatriz Milhazes, and Rufino Tamayo, as well as those recently emerging or re-discovered. The exhibition as a whole honors the myriad contributions of Latinx communities to the visual arts.
