The artists included in this exhibition provide a unique view of Latin American's art development in the recent decades. Due to the relevance of the pieces presented, this exhibition stands as unique opportunity to appreciate the main guidelines, both formal and conceptual, that are found today in Latin American artists.
The Daros Latinamerica Collection has one of the largest directories of Latin American art world. Its contemporary criteria departs from the regionalist and traditional dialogs offering an overview of reflective and critical productions, aligned with the best of contemporary art. The pieces that partake of it respond to these curatorial criteria rather than to an institutional legitimacy or market-related influence. Thus, the collection embodies a partial but significant view of the most interesting art of the region.
