Drawn from the internationally renowned Diane and Bruce Halle Collection,the exhibition presents contemporary, cutting edge works by Latin American artists who question the nature of the creative process. Whether working on canvas, in sculpture, photography, video, or installation, these radical innovators have transformed traditional artistic languages into new ways of creating and conceiving works of art. The works presented in this exhibition showcase the means by which artists working in Latin America have overcome their geographic marginality to initiate artistic currents that resonate on an international scale. This exhibition is not a survey of Latin American art, but rather a snapshot of the dynamic Halle Collection at a particular moment in its continuing history. It provides a window into many of the most significant trends in Latin American art from the mid-20th century to the present day.
