100 Latin American Artists brings together a selection of the best active Latin American Artists, chosen through the consultation and debate of a committee of experts on Latin American art consisting of: Irma Arestizábal (Director of the Istituto Italo Latino Americano, Rome), Olivier Debroise (Head of Exhibitions at MUCA, Universidad Autónoma of Mexico), Ticio Escobar (Director of the Museo de Arte Indígena del Centro de Artes Visuales-Museo del Barro, Asuncion), Andrea Giunta (Profesor of Contemporary Latin American Art, Universidad de Buenos Aires), Ivo Mesquita(Resident Curator at the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, NewYork), Gerardo Mosquera (Conservator of the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York), Adriano Pedrosa (Co-curator of the 27th Sao Paulo Biennial, 2006),Virginia Pérez-Ratton (Director of TEOR/éTica, San José de Costa Rica), Osvaldo Sánchez (Ex-director of the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Carrillo Gil (1998-2001), and the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Rufino Tamayo (2001), Mexico City) and Rosa Olivares (Publisher and Publications Director of EXIT, Madrid).
The book begins with some introductory essays by Rosa Olivares, Ticio Escobar, Gerardo Mosquera, Andrea Giunta and Irma Arestizábal, who address the situation of art from Latin America by considering it from distinct perspectives: the geographic concept itself, the centre-periphery dynamic, tradition, the present and future, and internationalization, thus conveying the meaning of this ensemble of such heterogeneous artists with a common denominator that, as you shall see on the following pages, is no more binding than it is differentiating.
The selection of 100 artists is presented alphabetically making it a user-friendly volume with a design that is both clear and modern and in which the images are foremost. As a whole, it is an extremely attractive publication. There are four pages on each artist, including: texts (in English and Spanish) analyzing their work and career, written by a group of specialists on contemporary art, and an extensive selection of images that reflect the evolution of their artistic production. An appendix at the end with the most relevant biographical information on each artist completes and concludes the volume.
100 Latin American Artists is therefore an essential reference book for getting up-to-date on a vibrant and contrasting artistic reality offering many quality contributions that are not always sufficiently recognized. This is a must book for the libraries of today's art experts and amateurs.
