Poéticas de la disidencia/Poetics of dissent

The works of Páz Errázuriz and Lotty Rosenfeld, two internationally renowned female artists, integrate into their viewpoints the contextual traces of an historical and political journey: from Chile‘s military dictatorship to the democratic post-transition period.

The exhibition “Poetics of Dissent” – which includes photography, texts and videos – contrast both ends of an uneven space-time of the Latin American space where coexist on one hand, the visual anachronism of the black and white photographic “ freeze” of abandoned bodies and geographies (Paz Errazuriz) and on another, the vastness of a globalized, technologically-based, overly documented world by means of visual memories, worn out by the repetition of television format, in need of being shaken by works of art (Lotty Rosenfeld). The introversion of helpless households the circumscribe within the privacy of confinement their needy identities (Paz Errazuriz) and, conversely, the media extroversion of transnational capitalism where economic value translates into the network potency and markets (Lotty Rosenfeld). These poetics separated in time and space define what is “Latin-American” as a composite rather than a simple category; a multi-track phenomenon that comprises the separation and the mixing of heterogeneous materials as a recess to redraw the “South” using its off-centered grids, margins and peripheries.

The Artists: Lotty Rosenfeld

Born in Santiago, Chile, Lotty Rosenfeld studied at the Escuela de Artes
Aplicadas, the School for Applied Arts, at the Universidad de Chile
from 1967 to 1969. While her early artistic activity revolved around
printmaking, in 1979 she joined the Colectivo Acciones de Arte (CADA),
the art actions collective, and began working on interventions in public
spaces. Along with CADA her work is associated with what is known as
the Escena de Avanzada. Her work has consisted primarily of
interventions in urban spaces in different parts of Chile and abroad.
Since then she has used art actions and video as her preferred formats
and techniques of expression.

The Curator: Nelly Richard

Born in France, Nelly Richard studied Modern Literature at the Sorbonne (Paris III), and has lived in Chile since 1970. Her book Margins and Institutions: Art in Chile since 1970 (1986), which gave shape to the Escena de Avanzada(a 1980’s collective avant-garde art movement protesting social and political matters) in Chile, is considered a key reference in the field of Latin American art and critical theory. She was the curator of the unofficial selection of the Paris Biennale (1982) and since then has undertaken a number of curatorial initiatives, both in and out of Chile, revolving around aesthetics, politics, memory and gender. In 1987 she was the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship. She was the founder and editor of Revista de Crítica Cultural from 1990 to 2008, and was the director of the Master’s Program in Cultural Studies at Universidad ARCIS, in Chile, from 2004 to 2010
