Full Description

Where Art Lives in Latin America has as its starting point the countless ways of exposing and showing contemporary art today. In addition to the traditional museum concept, with its program of temporary exhibitions and permanent collection, in recent decades other formats have emerged that conduct contemporary art thinking and doing, including foundations, artistic residencies, independent art spaces, sculpture parks, among others.

The book brings the reader a selection of 35 spaces for creation and exhibition in Latin America that are a reference for the development of the state of the art not only in the region but worldwide, each in its own way. Composed of images from each space and exclusive interviews with their respective directors and curators, the publication brings together unavoidable and original places that today represent the greatest poles of thought and avant-garde in contemporary Latin American art.

Text in English, Portuguese and Spanish.
