Last week to visit #FelicianoCenturión: Abrigo curated by @gperezbarreiro before its closing on November 20, 2020!

Abrigo is the first solo exhibition of Paraguayan artist Feliciano Centurión in the United States, curated by Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro. Centurión created textile works engaging with folk art and queer aesthetics in 1990s South America. Through the embroidery and painting of vernacular objects such as blankets and aprons, Centurión rendered poetic readings of his youth in the tropics, his love experiences in the metropolis, and his spiritual reflections before his untimely death due to AIDS-related illness.

You can also watch the documentary Feliciano Centurión: Abrazo Íntimo al Natural, directed by Mon Ross (2016), and a guided tour of the exhibition on our Youtube Channel, and other videos related to the artist and the exhibition.

Gallery hours: Wednesday to Friday 12-6 pm. Plan your visit learn more about our protocols by visiting our website.

Políticas culturales en el mundo post-Covid 19: La crisis sanitaria todavía no termina para muchos países latinoamericanos, pero ya se plantean importantes preguntas para los gobiernos de la región, particularmente la necesidad de reabrir sus economías mientras luchan contra la pandemia. Frente a la amenaza de una grave crisis económica y social, ¿cuál será el lugar de la cultura y las artes en los planes de los gobiernos de la región? El sector cultural ha sido profundamente afectado por la crisis: los lugares de creación y difusión artística permanecen cerrados y muchos artistas carecen de ingresos.

Los participantes en este panel hablan de las iniciativas que han surgido en diversos países de la región para apoyar a la cultura y las artes: ¿qué están haciendo los gobiernos para apoyar al sector cultural y a los artistas? ¿Cuáles son las iniciativas más destacables - desde el estado, los gobiernos locales, o la sociedad civil? ¿Cuál será el lugar de la cultura en los planes gubernamentales para el mundo post- COVID?
