Sol Calero - La Escuela del Sur
8 October - 6 December at Studio Voltaire
The Venezuelan artist Sol Calero is showing her largest exhibition 'La Escuela del Sur' (The School of South) at Studio Voltaire. She creates playful installations and a tropical and social setting.
The exhibition is inspired by Joaquin Torres Garcia who made a text of the same name.
"I have called this "The School of the South"
because in reality, our north is the south. There must not be north
for us, except in opposition to our south. Therefore we now turn
the map upside down, and then we have a true idea of our position,
and not as the rest of the world wishes".
- The School of the South, Joaquín Torres García
During the exhibition a series of lectures will be held on issues surrounding cultural appropriation of Latin American art. For more information visit the Studio Voltaire website.
Have a good week!
