    Esteban Álvarez

    10 July 2000 - 24 July 2000

    Esteban Álvarez produced a small edition of 'ponchos' commissioned by ESCALA which were shown for the first time. This and other works presented at University Gallery seeked to satirise the identification of artisanal objects -such as masks, 'ponchos', 'mates' and other elements symbolic of culture specificity- as signifiers of peripheral art, the so-called 'primitive'.

    Outros 500

    20 January 2000 - 1 October 2000

    In Autumn 2000, to mark the anniversary of the arrival of the first Europeans in Brazil, Gabriela Salgado curated an exhibition of works selected from ESCALA's Brazilian holdings, and, with support from the Latin American Centre, published an illustrated catalogue with contributions from numerous different scholars. The exhibition was mounted in the Albert Sloman Library and was timed to coincide with a series of events - films, lectures, concerts - organised by Dr Mathias Röhrig Assunção of the History Department as a part of the Latin American Centre's Brazil Month in October 2000.

    Ofelia Rodríguez: Relics and Mementos

    15 November 1999 - 18 December 1999

    The exhibition included paintings, works on paper and sculptures which inhabit a world of the kitsch, the surreal and of popular art. At first glance Ofelia Rodríguez's compositions undoubtedly appeal to the Western perception of Latin American popular culture. They are often bright and loaded with images and icons which are familiarly 'Latin'. However, a closer look at the way the artist conceives each piece reveals a much more profound reflection on a range of issues, both concerning her personal and wider identity and that of her country and birth.
