10:00 AM - 4:00 PM The New York Latin American Art Triennial 2019: Progressive Transition
Progressive Transition explores the action and effect of moving from one state to another.  More broadly, the project shows the drive towards transformation in the arts. The artists’ need to “feel part of something” that can likewise be recognized and defined by others will be explored within the exhibition. The work on view represents the artistic transition seen against a landscape of societal progress. The project highlights cultural exchange and, at its core, examines the implications of transition on an evolving Latin American culture.
