Decolonized Exoticism

Since Colonialism, Latin America has been a land of exoticism when seen from the Western gaze. Yet, even when coming a long way since then, some mysticism still exists. Hence, the relevance of looking into the narrative of artists who have the agency to explore and develop practices that expand Latin America's understanding and criticize it through their visual language. Patrick Hamilton, Darío Escobar, Diego Pérez and Francisco Muñoz each explore Latin America's social and artistic processes from a critical perspective, sharing references in Archeology, Pop culture, and Politics. Through their practices, they tackle decolonization, aiming to surpass the domesticated belief of the “exotic” or “primitive” territory; they induce thought- provoking analysis regarding the complexity of Contemporary Art in Latin America.
