    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.

    Across, beyond, through, the etymology of the prefix trans- forms a broad thematic concept bringing together the works selected for Transit. Using this theme to approach the art works in this exhibition, a concept of translation emerges, in transit, between two different, but interconnected, interpretations. Transit suggests a way of making good the distance involved in the practice of displaying and discussing art from Latin America in England by suggesting that dislocation can be productive, that displacement is informative.
