Waterweavers: The River in Contemporary Colombian Visual and Material Culture
Using the trope of the river as a conceptual device to explore the intersections in Colombian contemporary culture between art, craft, and design, Waterweavers reveals the intricate ways in which culture and nature can intertwine across disciplines. Curated by José Roca, Estrellita B. Brodsky Adjunct Curator of Latin American Art at Tate Modern and Artistic Director of FLORA ars+natura in Bogotá, with the assistance of independent writer and editor Alejandro Martín, the exhibition presents textiles, ceramics, graphic design, furniture, video, and installations to address a concept informed by social, political, and ecological strife in Colombia: the river.
