Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative - Latin America
Introducing Pablo León de la Barra
Guggenheim UBS MAP Curator, Latin America, Pablo León de la Barra discusses his interest in creating a dialogue on Latin American art at the Guggenheim and beyond by focusing on the region’s shared histories and forging new connections between them.
Artworks chosen by León de la Barra will enter the collection and form the basis of an exhibition planned to open at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in 2014 before traveling to two international venues.
A new MAP exhibition, focused on Latin America, is currently in development. Curator Pablo León de la Barra is now conducting research visits to regional artists, galleries, and museums; the artworks he selects will be presented at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and two further venues, and will also become part of the Guggenheim’s permanent collection. Check back here to view the artworks in the months ahead.
The Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative is supported by a variety of far-reaching educational and contextual activities, including lectures, panels, performances, films, gallery tours, multimedia mobile tours, and artist-led workshops. These programs and accompanying resource materials will evolve from a dynamic process of exchange among the Guggenheim’s curatorial and education staff, the project curators, the artists, and colleagues from participating institutions.
