    Full Description

    Guaymallén is a municipality in the province of Mendoza in Argentina. It was here that La Chola Poblete, Deutsche Bank’s “Artist of the Year” 2023, was born in 1989. The choice to name the exhibition and publication Guaymallén is the artist’s tribute to her roots and a reflection on her queer identity. La Chola Poblete is one of the most renowned Latin American artists. Her work combines biographical and cultural-aesthetic references with fundamental criticism. La Chola engages with the consequences of colonialism and capitalism, especially in the context of the obliteration and stereotyping of Indigenous peoples and cultures.

    Text in English, Spanish and German.
