Description - Latin American Art Now by Iria Candela
This is the first book to provide a thorough exploration of Latin American art since 1990, a period during which the Latin American art scene has grown in importance and influence. Iria Candela explains the importance of contemporary art in this complex and diverse region, and provides a detailed study of new and unconventional art practices. Her original, in-depth interpretation of more than 100 works in a wide variety of media focuses on disruptive and politically committed works that challenge traditional forms and recognize the need to strengthen freedom of expression and democratization in Latin America. Among the Latin American - born or - based artists featured are Gabriel Orozco, Doris Salcedo, Ernesto Neto, Francis Alys, Jorge Macchi, Santiago Sierra, Carlos Garaicoa, and Allora & Calzadilla.
