Fourteen Latin American artists of international relevance open the new space of Aninat Galería under the curatorship of Isabel Aninat. This collective exhibition has been managed and prepared for more than two years by the gallerist, who has interviewed and visited studios of the different artists to make an interesting selection of pieces. The exhibition raises different questions regarding the different influences that the Latin American world receives from the great powers and how this responds by proposing a new language.

Among the artists that will make up this show are:

Analivia Cordero (Brazil)
Alberto Borea (Peru)
Carlos Motta (Colombia)
Sybil Brintrup (Chile)
Huanchaco (Peru)
Lotty Rosenfeld (Chile)
Marcelo Brodsky (Argentina)
Patricia Belli (Nicaragua)
Raúl Zurita (Chile)
Sandra Gamarra (Peru)
Ricardo Rendón (Mexico)
Sigismond de Vajay (Argentina)
Oscar Muñoz (Colombia)
Liliana Porter (Argentina)
Luis Romero (Venezuela)

There is great excitement from the gallery to ask the question—if this is possible—about who we are and how we have developed culturally, this was also the question that eleven years ago we wanted to make visible in a first exhibition of Entrecruce latinoamericano, in which the artists were gathered to investigate our history from the mixture of influences. Eleven years later, knowing that—every question about our origin will remain open—we establish again a dialogue about our identity and influences, which we seek to make visible from a cultural transvestism, about how those influences are investitures that over time formed a characteristic identity, relating that—investing or dressing as—with the taking of those most influential cultures, which are shown as superior and more effective.

Entrecruce latinoamericano: travestismo cultural is an exhibition that seeks to emphasize the question of approaching our history and constitution as Latin Americans, with the aim of “being able to understand our work from a collective imaginary perspective and thus generate ties and structures of thoughts where the languages do not float without aim”, as Isabel Aninat writes.
