Lost. In Between. Together | 22nd Bienal de Arte Paiz Guatemala
Curated by Alexia Tala, chief curator, and Gabriel Rodríguez, adjunct curator, the Biennial will feature 40 artists in its central exhibition and two special individual exhibitions on Guatemalan artist Aníbal López and Chilean artist Paz Errázuriz.
Titled Lost. In Between. Together, the Bienal invites visitors to reflect on the situation of perpetual crisis that affects the Global South. With Guatemala as a point of departure to investigate the cultural and geographical diversity of Latin America and beyond in the Global South, the approximation of the 22 Bienal de Arte Paiz towards issues around contemporary and ancestral history, interculturality, forms of knowledge and violence aims to establish points of encounter between art and the current context. Lost. In Between. Together seeks to focus on the ability of the Global South to tell its own story, with an observant look at both its roots and its present, reuniting artistic expressions marked by activism, awareness of human rights and the power of certain geographies, or artistic expressions linked to traditions and ancestral knowledge where art often encroaches in the territory of the sacred.
