JOSE GUERRERO: “…OF THE AMERICAS”, Lehigh University Art Galleries, Bethlehem (USA)
…OF THE AMERICAS
Lehigh University Art Galleries
José Guerrero participates in …Of The Americas, an exhibition focuses on the ways Latino artists have carved out a place within the mainstream of art history or have positioned themselves against it. Abstraction, conceptualism, and the politics of identity constitute the territory of contemporary art in America. Not surprisingly, these concerns belong to artists of many backgrounds with diverse personal histories. Figures like Diego Rivera, Wifredo Lam, and José Clemente Orozco have become highly visible, but countless others from Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Cuba, Jamaica, Ecuador and elsewhere have contributed to the complex story of contemporary art. Reflecting aspects of gender, diaspora, poetics, and political commentary, these artists address the reality of life in the 20th and 21st centuries.
