OAS AMA | Art Museum of the Americas exhibition of the series Building Dialogs by Bolivian photographer Alejandra Delgado Uria and American photographer Brad Temkin. In Inca mythology, the universe is divided into three territories, or pachas: hanan, kay, and uku (similar to that of the Catholic notions of heaven, earth, and hell). These three pacha realms are also conceived akin to buildings, with rooftops, levels, and basements. Building Dialogs explore these “buildings” through the photography of two artists: “the hanan”, the roof, through Brad Temkin’s Rooftops; and “the kay”, the center, through Alejandra Delgado’s series Fantasmagorias, of disembodied architecture of Bolivian Cholets –a mixture of the word chalet (large house) and chola (indigenous woman). Co-curated by Sinara Sandri and Fabian Goncalves Borrega. Go to more info about this exhibit (will open OAS AMA website).

OAS AMA | Art Museum of the Americas exhibition of the series Del Sur, retratos de Punta Arenas y Valparaíso Series, Chilean photographer Vicente González Mimica’ presents black-and-white portraits of two cities in the south of Chile. Like in the Charles Dickens novel A Tale of Two Cities, one city (London) is described as law-abiding and orderly—analogous to how the artist presents Punta Arenas—and is contrasted with a largely politically agitated city (Paris), which is how González sees Valparaíso. Curated by Fabian Goncalves Borrega.

OAS AMA | Art Museum of the Americas exhibition of the series On the Move, Mexican artist Olivia Vivanco depicts personal objects and religious relics, migrants’ hands accompanied by text, drawing us more closely to stories of migration. These strong images bring to mind displacement, fragility, willpower and suffering. As Vivanco describes, “the trip is hard and there is no room for luggage, however, they always carry something special: an image, an object, material memories that evoke their identity. It is a long journey that involves losses so that at each step these objects acquire more value. These are the evidences of who they are and the reasons why they should continue.”

OAS AMA | Art Museum of the Americas exhibition of the series Insects of Surinam, Canadian photographer Dominique Paul allows us to understand that the transformation of insects occurs naturally while that of the human body is made consciously. It is a text that uses insects’ metamorphosis as a metaphor for the desired transformation of the human body. By replacing the images of insects in his photographic collages with images cut out from contemporary publications of masculine, tanned, highly slender and very muscular bodies, a parallel is drawn between the natural mutation of insects and the unnatural mutation of the human body supported by the technique and commercially inspired with the only purpose of fulfilling a desire. Curated by Fabian Goncalves Borrega.
