Pre-Columbian Remix: The Art of Enrique Chagoya, Demián Flores, Rubén Ortiz-Torres, and Nadín Ospina

Focuses on the work of four leading Latin American artists.

In most Latin American countries the very idea of pre-Columbian heritage has been a strategy to reinforce national unity. This exhibition focuses on the work of four leading Latin American artists who challenge this trend. By fusing ancient Aztec, Mayan or Incan art forms with pop-culture imagery in an ironic and often humorous manner, they address present concerns relating to universal themes of corruption and globalization. Re-mixed and renewed, the past becomes accessible under very different perspectives.
