New Territories: Laboratories for Design, Craft, and Art in Latin America
Jan 9, 2016 to Apr 17, 2016
The exhibition includes art, design, and craft in several distinct cities throughout Latin America, where some of the most pertinent new directions in arts and design are emerging today. The featured collaborations between small manufacturing operations and craftspersons, artists, and designers, demonstrate not only the issues of commodification and production, but also of urbanization, displacement and sustainability.
The exhibition celebrates the art and design work emanating from key cities that serve as cultural hubs for some of the most pertinent new ideas about art, design, and craft, including: Caracas, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Santiago, Buenos Aires, San Salvador, San Juan, Havana, Mexico City, and the state of Oaxaca.
"New Territories" is the first museum group exhibition in the United States dedicated to contemporary Latin American design and was organized by Lowery Stokes Sims at the Museum of Arts and Design, New York.
