Peters Pears Gallery, Aldeburgh

10 June 2000 - 25 June 2000

A rare chance to see a selection of work from Europe’s foremost collection of Latin American art in Aldeburgh. 

This exhibition at Aldeburgh demonstrates that Latin America has produced work as challenging, innovative and exciting as that of better-known European and US artists.

The show was curated with this year’s Aldeburgh Festival in mind, in particular Thomas Adès’ new composition America. This work receives its UK premiere during the festival and interweaves a painful lament based on a Mayan account of the Spanish conquest with the triumphalism of the conquerors. Latin American art is a similar interweaving of histories and cultures. Professor Dawn Ades calls it ‘astonishing in its richness and variety’.
