Featuring the work of more than 75 designers, artists, craftspersons, and collectives, surveys the innovative, cross-disciplinary new directions in creative production that have been occurring throughout Latin America since 2000.
After Albuquerque, the exhibition will travel to Museo Amparo, Puebla, Mexico: June 25–September 27, 2016.
Whether you go or not, the exhibition catalog, New Territories: Laboratories for Design, Craft and Art in Latin America, examines creative practices in today's globalized world, in which disciplines overlap more than ever before. Looking in particular at countries such as Brazil, Cuba, Panama, Columbia, Mexico, El Salvador, Puerto Rico, Venezuela and Chile, this volume discusses the ways in which craft, art and design have transcended their former identities. Including the work of more than 100 artists, designers/design studios and artisans, New Territories sets out to explore the present state of design--much of which has emerged from interfaces between manufacturers, folk artisans, indigenous artists and designers--and its future.
