About the Exhibition



June 13 - October 1, 2014

Under the Same Sun: Art from Latin America Today
Guggenheim Museum, New York

Fall 2015
Museo Jumex, Mexico City

Luis Camnitzer included in Under the Same Sun: Art from Latin America Today, curated by Pablo Leon de la Barra at the Guggenheim Museum, NY.

Under the Same Sun: Art from Latin America Today reconsiders the state of contemporary art in Latin America, investigating the creative responses of artists to complex, shared realities that have been influenced by colonial and modern histories, repressive governments, economic crises, and social inequality, as well as by concurrent periods of regional economic wealth, development, and progress. The exhibition presents contemporary artistic responses to the past and present that are inscribed within this highly nuanced situation, exploring the assertions of alternative futures.

Organized by Pablo León de la Barra, Guggenheim UBS MAP Curator, Latin America, Under the Same Sun features works by 37 artists and collaborative duos from 16 countries. The artworks are organized around five themes: “Conceptualism and its Legacies,” “Tropicologies,” “Political Activism,” “Modernism and its Failures,” and “Participation/Emancipation.”

Under the Same Sun: Art from Latin America Today is the second of three exhibitions that form part of the Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative. Following its presentation in New York, the exhibition will travel to two additional international venues. The artworks in the exhibition, along with others acquired as part of the initiative, will become part of the Guggenheim’s permanent collection under the auspices of the Guggenheim UBS MAP Purchase Fund.
