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!
