New York | ‘This Must Be the Place: Latin American Artists in New York, 1965-1975, Part II’
March 16 | 5:30 pm
Please join us for an in-person tour of Part II of This Must Be the Place: Latin American Artists in New York, 1965–1975, with Aimé Iglesias Lukin, Director and Chief curator of the Americas Society.
This Must Be the Place: Latin American Artists in New York, 1965–1975 is a two-part group exhibition exploring the work of a generation of migrants who created and exhibited in New York City between 1965 and 1975. Featuring installation, photography, video art, painting, and archival material, the exhibition brings together a generation that actively participated in experimental artistic movements while pushing forward their own visual languages and ideas, with works exploring topics of migration, identity, politics, exile, and nostalgia. Additionally, the exhibition highlights the important contributions and solidarity initiatives of groups and collectives, testimony of these artists’ effort to create community and to forge a space for themselves.
Part II of the exhibition will continue the themes explored in Part I with new artworks on display, by artists including Hélio Oiticica, Sylvia Palacios Whitman, Anna Maria Maiolino, Antonio Dias, Enrique Castro-Cid, Beba Damianovich, Zilia Sánchez and many more. Part II is on view through May 2022.
