Washington, DC 20006

Ñew York, featuring works by young, outstanding Latin American and Spanish artists residing in New York City commemorates a long lost artistic exchange and recovers innovative communication channels between Latin American and Spanish plastic and visual artists.  The exhibition incorporates New York City as the current setting where these creative forces re-encounter themselves. The exhibition addresses mobility in an era of widespread displacement where barriers between the global and the local are broken down. Motion (mobility), Emotion (personal artistic work) and Promotion (promote and advance the careers of expat artists) are all addressed throughout the show. The artists were selected based on their accomplishments, artistic careers and their approach to concepts of mobility, migration and cultural exchange, all intrinsic to a city where new ideas, experiences and diversity converge.

Curated by Paco Cano, Eva Mendoza Chandas and Jodie Dinapoli (all from Spain), Ñew York showcases the work of 18 artists from 10 countries from Latin America and Spain -all based in New York – who have made this city the gravitating force of their artistic discourse.
