The title, Everything you are I am not, is borrowed from a work that is presented in the show by Argentina’s most visible artist, Adrián Villar Rojas. It alludes to the common practice among
contemporary artists from the region to subvert the canons of mainstream art to produce thoughtprovoking, often humorous works. With over 60 pieces by 35 artists, the exhibition will explore several different facets of this approach. Highlights include a focus on “experimental” drawing with individual displays by artists such as Eduardo Basualdo, from Argentina; Mateo López and Nicolás Paris from Colombia; deconstructed painting and sculpture with largescale displays by Brazilian artists Leda Catunda, Adriano Costa, Maria Nepomuceno, Erika Verzutti and Cuban artists Los Carpinteros, among others; and a strong emphasis on street art and urban culture, with largescale participative installations by Os Gêmeos and Paulo Nazareth from Brazil, and individual displays by Mexican artists Pedro Reyes, Moris, and...Edgardo Aragón.
The works are selected from the Tiroche DeLeon Collection by the internationally renowned, Londonbased art historian, patron, and collector Catherine Petitgas, who has a strong focus on contemporary art from Latin America.
This exhibition is presented in the Glass Gallery.
