Can abstraction be political?

Remains–Tomorrow: Themes in Contemporary Latin American Abstraction offers a thought-provoking perspective on the dynamic field of contemporary abstraction in Latin America. It proposes abstraction as an expanded field of reality in direct dialogue with life and as a strategy for critically examining the social, political, and cultural arenas. Featuring 280 artists, the book explores different manifestations of post 1990s Latin American abstraction and their underlying relationships to and differences from modern abstraction. Essays by Cecilia Fajardo-Hill and Juan Ledezma, 28 texts by participating artists as well as biographies and over 700 illustrations, examine issues such as gender, interculturality and popular culture. The unique polyphony and almost infinitely artistically diverse positions it an indispensable reference book on Latin American abstraction.

CECILIA FAJARDO-HILL is an independent British/Venezuelan art historian and curator specialized in Latin American and Latinx art. She is known for the exhibition Radical Women: Latin American Art 1960–1985 at Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, 2017 that presented experimental works of female artists.
