The exhibition includes the work of 22 artists from eight Latin American countries and focuses on the unique and creative way of portraying our continent’s culture through the most modern trends in the plastic arts, without neglecting the roots that have influenced them.

The CAF Gallery’s tribute to sculptors from the region comprises a broad display, as part of its sponsorship of the culture that has shaped Latin American art. It aims to provide a medium in which the everlasting historical and cultural footprint of our people can flourish.

Use of space, topology, presence, surroundings, proportion and position are aspects that make the “Times and Trends, Latin American Sculptors” a celebration in which people and objects come together in a harmonious ambience. Shapes, colors, material, format, tension and dialogue create a certain dynamism in reading the sample in space by giving them their proper place.

“CAF-development bank of Latin America- is very proud to present a new exhibition at its gallery, this time with select examples of art that depict times and trends in Latin American sculpture.” We have selected a group of 22 artists from different countries and times, who evoke some of the aesthetic movements that have predominated in Latin America. “Sculpture in the region is deeply rooted, ranging from pre-Colombian times to more contemporary plastic styles,” said Luis Carranza, Executive President of CAF.

Mariela Provenzali, curator of the CAF Gallery, said that: "regardless of theoretical or critical definitions – and with a subjective license – one can make fanciful assumptions about the relationship between various types of art. As with life itself, the work on display at the exhibition conveys the same message: be seen, be appreciated, give pleasure and cause reflection. An exhibition in which the immobile guests celebrate the gaze of those looking at them”.

The work on display includes that of Lydia Azout and Edgar Negret, from Colombia; José Luis Cuevas and Sebastian, from Mexico; Diego Alexandre Asi and Bolivar Gaudín, from Uruguay; Jorge Seguí, from Argentina; Héctor Villalobos, from Chile; Jorge Jiménez Deredia, from Costa Rica; Joaquín Liébana, from Peru; and Guillermo Abdala, Pedro Barreto, Lia Bermúdez, Joel Casique, José Antonio Fernández, Mateo Manaure, Francisco Martínez, Luis Millé, J.J. Moros, Abigail Varela, Oswaldo Vigas and Cornelis Zitman from Venezuela. You can visit the CAF Gallery on the ground floor of the Torre CAF in Altamira, Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
