8 June 2012 - 9 June 2012

The Essex Collection of Art from Latin America (ESCALA) is delighted to be involved again this year in Pinta, the Modern and Contemporary Latin American Art show, when it comes to London for the third time.

This year we have been invited again to participate in the Pinta Museums Acquisition Programme alongside the Centre Georges Pompidou, Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (MIMA) and Tate Modern.

We are also working in association with England & Co. Gallery to organize a performance and talks to complement the gallery’s display of works and archival material relating to Latin American art in London and Europe in the 1960s and 1970s.

The performance, on Saturday 9 June, will be by aruma (Sandra De Berduccy), an emerging artist from Bolivia whose work we recently acquired for Unravelling Threads, our current exhibition at firstsite (until 17 June 2012). The performance has also been supported by the Bolivian Embassy in London.

England & Co. Gallery’s display will include contemporary works by aruma and historical works and documentary material on Cecilia Vicuña, Lygia Clark, Mira Schendel and U.S. artist John Dugger. Dugger’s original ‘Chile Vencerá’ banner, which was hung in Trafalgar Square in 1974, will be installed at Earl’s Court and he and aruma will both be ‘in conversation’ on Saturday 9 as part of a talks programme that begins on Friday 8.
