Lotty Rosenfeld + CADA
espaivisor, Valencia (G16)
espaivisor presents an art-historical curated project on the Chilean artist Lotty Rosenfeld (b. 1943, Santiago de Chile) and the group CADA (Art Actions Collective), of which Rosenfeld was a member.
The presentation is an homage to the artist, whose conceptual and historical value of her practice has never been presented in a major international art fair, despite being acknowledged as one of Chile's most important living artist. Rosenfeld's work is key to a proper understanding of Latin American art over the last four decades but also of global art practices engaging with political issues and with memory.
The showcase will include vintage prints, photos and videos, some of which have been shown at Documenta 12 (2007) and at the recent show Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960–1985, Brooklyn Museum, New York (2017), Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, Pinacoteca de São Paulo, São Paulo (2018). Accompanying the presentation of Rosenfeled, espaivisor exhibits works by CADA (Art Actions Collective), an interdisciplinary group of Chilean artists (Diamela Eltit, Raúl Zurita, Juan Castillo, Fernando Balcells and Lotty Rosenfeld) created in 1979 to engage in a critical reflection on the tensions between art and politics during the dictatorial regime in Chile at the time.
