Visual Arts at Americas Society

Visual Arts at Americas Society Americas Society's gallery exhibits Latin American, Caribbean, and Canadian art. "Victoria Cabezas and Priscilla Monge: Give Me What You Ask For" is on view February 13-May 4.
(43)

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. Publications expand the scope and impact of our work, and together with our exhibitions and public programs, contribute new cultural developments, analysis, and scholarship to the field.

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.
