The Storytellers: Narratives in
International Contemporary Art
August 30 - November 4
Curated by Selene Wendt in collaboration with Gerardo Mosquera
The exhibition title is inspired by Mario Vargas Llosa’s book The Storyteller. The unique storytelling tradition which characterizes Latin American literature has also inspired many contemporary artists around the world. Within this context, it is interesting to investigate the work of contemporary artists from around the world who are inspired not only by these authors, but by literature and poetry in general, as seen in works that are typically highly narrative. Naturally, there will be a strong emphasis on artists from Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Colombia, but the exhibition will not be limited to Latin American artists.
