In his first solo museum exhibition in the U.S., Juntos Together presents films, videos, sculpture and site-specific installations by Colombian-born, Paris-based artist, Iván Argote. The exhibition includes Argote’s first film and video survey (2007–2019), featuring experimental films that range from the documentation of public interventions to subtler gestures that push the boundaries of the moving image. Along with his video survey there is a site-specific, sculptural installation that considers the current cultural climate of Arizona. Argote’s sculptures blend references to pre-Colombian art and brutalist architecture, and often contain texts that embody what the artist calls Ternura radical (Radical Tenderness). This strategy uses affection, emotions and humor as subversive tools to engage public audiences on political and personal levels.

Juntos Together is curated by Julio César Morales and is supported by the Helme Prinzen Endowment, ASU Art Museum Artist Residency, Perrotin Gallery, Patti Parsons, Kristin Bauer and Emmett Potter, Bobby Walker and Michael Zirulnik.
