Chosen Memories: Contemporary Latin American Art

A cross-generational look at the unique convergence of art and politics in Latin America, from Leandro Katz to Mauro Restiffe.

Chosen Memories presents artworks that find their poetic and political vitality by mobilizing histories of Latin America. Published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the publication presents artworks by contemporary Latin American artists who, over the last four decades, have looked to history as the source material for new work. Videos, photographs, paintings and sculptures, many of which were donated to the museum by the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros in 2018, are presented in dialogue with one another.
Organized into three thematic sections, the catalog examines how artists have investigated and reimagined histories and cultural legacies of the region, including long histories of colonialism, undervalued cultural and visual heritages, and inherited and chosen kinships. The richly illustrated catalog features over 40 artists from different generations working across Latin America. Hardcover, 128 pages.
