    Latin American Art: Contexts and Accomplices

    27 January 2004 - 21 March 2004

    In 1921 David Alfaro Siqueiros famously declared that modern artists in Mexico should embrace the constructive vitality of the art of the pre-columbian past while avoiding at all costs what he calls 'those lamentable archaeological reconstructions' by which he means anything that smacks of the literal, the nostalgic and the picturesque. The problem of how best to draw on the non-Western artistic heritage of the Americas has preoccupied artists ever since and this exhibition explores some of their solutions.

    Modernity and Identity

    7 November 2002 - 3 December 2002

    The works in this exhibition are an encounter between two perspectives on the contemporary city. The city as an image to be viewed, as design, map or plan, and the city as a site, a delimited piece of land, defined by a particular geography with reference to which buildings are implanted, and complex architectures elaborated. The architecture of the city should ideally lie where site and image meet at the level of human necessity. But in the contemporary Latin American city it is rarely so.
