The book Remains – Tomorrow: Themes in Contemporary Latin American Abstraction by Cecilia Fajardo-Hill will be launched by Art Nexus during Art Basel Miami on December 1st at 4:00 pm. The book features artworks by María Fernanda Cardoso, as well as other artists that have explored post 1990s Latin American abstraction.
“Remains–Tomorrow: Themes in Contemporary Latin American Abstraction offers a thought-provoking perspective on the dynamic field of contemporary abstraction in Latin America. It proposes abstraction as an expanded field of reality in direct dialogue with life, and as a strategy for critically examining social, political, and cultural concerns. Featuring 280 artists, the book explores different manifestations of post-1990s Latin American abstraction and their underlying relationships to and differences from modern abstraction. Essays by Cecilia Fajardo-Hill and Juan Ledezma, 28 texts by participating artists, as well as biographies and over 700 illustrations, examine issues such as gender, interculturality, and popular culture. The unique polyphony and almost infinitely artistically diverse positions make this an indispensable reference book on Latin American abstraction.
CECILIA FAJARDO-HILL is a British/Venezuelan art historian and curator who specializes in Latin American and Latinx art. She is known for the exhibition Radical Women: Latin American Art 1960–1985 at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, 2017, that presented experimental works of female artists.”
