|Magnan-Emrich Contemporary is pleased to present Hot Latin Artists including a selection of significant examples from ten emerging artists dedicated to contemporary Latin-American art. The exhibition will be on view from June 29 – August 5, 2006. |
Alejandro Almanza Pereda [Mexican, living in New York] addresses preconceived notions of danger and risk. Solid concrete blocks balance upon a series of light bulbs creating a sense of tension and awkwardness for the viewer. A recent graduate of Skowhegan, Alejandro has solo exhibitions scheduled for Mexico City and Magnan-Emrich Contemporary in the fall.
Tania Bruguera [Cuban] a well-known performance artist living in Havana and Chicago has shown in numerous biennials including Venice 2003 and 2005, Sao Paolo 1996 and Documenta 11 in 2002. A charcoal study for her Documenta installation/performance Untitled (Kassel) will be on view. The drawing lists names of countries and cities with civil unrest in which innocent civilians were killed.
Elizabeth Ceredijo [Cuban, living in Miami] deals with a deeply personal subject – her mother’s diagnosis of the Alzheimer’s disease. She photographs seemingly mundane objects that gain importance due to her mother’s increasing inability to operate them. Black and white text describes some of the items she has lost as well as that which will vanish in the future as she worsens.
Raul Cordero [Cuban, living in Havana] has exhibited extensively in the US and most recently in the Havana Biennial, 2006. His recent work captures images from videos and interprets them into a static media – painting. Cordero’s paintings challenge categories of classical painting and new media.
