Cecilia Brunson Projects is delighted to announce a group exhibition of nine UK-based Latin American artists. Entitled Contagio and curated by artist Jaime Gili, the show is comprised of newly commissioned or recent work by Cecilia Bonilla, Alexandre Canonico, Martín Cordiano, Patricia Domínguez, Jaime Gili, Lucía Pizzani, Manuela Ribadeneira, Lizi Sánchez and Chino Soria.
Contagio gives each artist the opportunity to communicate a personal, poetic or political message that speaks to past and present Latin American and European artistic traditions and cultural circumstances. In doing so, the exhibition is an experiment to test the depth of the artists’ shared perspective at the confluence between Latin America and Europe. With nearly every country in the Southern Cone represented, Contagio aims to openly highlight the importance of cultural exchange and illustrate how the flow of artistic and cultural traditions have a ‘contagious’ element to them.
Accompanying the works, there will be a library displaying publications selected by each artist. A catalogue will be published with a text by Kiki Mazzucchelli.
