Visual Arts program at the Americas Society organizes and presents modern, contemporary, colonial, archeological and Pre-Columbian exhibitions. Our projects provoke dialogue and debate about regional modernism and global art through talks, panel discussions, lectures, and academic symposia.

Terence Gower: The Good Neighbour

The Canadian artist Terence Gower and curator Aimé Iglesias Lukin discuss Gower's work focusing on Mexican modernism and muralism on view through July 17 at Americas Society.

In this video, Gower shares his first impressions of Mexico when he arrived in the 1990s, explaining what fascinated him about the country's efforts to achieve modernity in architecture as a national policy starting in the 1920s and 1930s. Describing his work focused on Mexico City's Tlatelolco housing project, which was built in the 1960s, he says his work diverts from history's focus on the failures of the large modern projects: "I'm always focusing on what kind of problems they solved. The piece is kind of an homage to that kind of audacity."

Terence Gower: The Good Neighbour is now open!

The exhibition focuses on the Canadian artist’s relationship with Mexico since the early 1990s. It offers an overview of his work from his arrival in Mexico City in 1993 and his involvement with the city’s bustling international art scene. Following his training in photoconceptualism in Canada, Gower’s arrival in Mexico connected him to new aesthetic ideas, which allowed him to deconstruct traditional dichotomies of design and craft, and high and low culture. Created in the context of increasing globalization following the NAFTA agreement, his work from this period is a critical analysis of contemporary Mexican society, as well as the history of conceptualism in the Americas.

Gallery hours:
Wednesday - Friday 12:00 - 6:00 pm and Saturdays from 12:00-5:00 pm. Please visit our website or bio to make an appointment.

Happy Birthday to Feliciano Centurión!
Today would be the 59th bday of the Paraguayan artist, who passed away in 1994. The message of hope and spirituality upon disease present in his art is particularly resonant in our current times. His legacy is present through his work, but also through the testimony of the many artists and friends who dearly loved him.
Americas Society had a restrospective of his work last year, curated by @gperezbarreiro. See his art and a documentary on our website. Also see the monograph Feliciano Centurion, edited @kmec_books and distributed by @artbook.
Specially recommended to celebrate him today is the series #OnaCenturionWork on our web, YouTube channel or here on IGTV, where his friends and family share stories and anecdotes.
