> DESCRIPTION

“Just North of the South Pole,” describes the approximate lugar de origen of the vast Andean Mountain range. This region, encompassing many countries, has a rich history of changing or undefined borders, governments, and most interestingly, self-described identities. The artwork in this exhibit, ranging from works on paper to collaborative metal sculpture, express the emblem of each artists freedom and individuality. Focusing on Chile and Argentina, this invitational exhibit highlights the diversity and personal evolutions of contemporary artists who, by relocation or association, have found themselves in our locale.

Curatorial Statement:
Borne of the collection of curators Laura Beaton-Aguilera and Henry Aguilera, artists from the Andean regions of Chile and Argentina were invited to participate in a unique event at The Deering Estate at Cutler. They began to create fascinating dialogue amongst themselves regarding identities and public perception. What does the rest of the world perceive us to be? Will the public's expectation include folk art, craft, or other cliches of South American Art? Do these historical influences inform my own aesthetic and how might my work be characteristically Chilean or Argentinean? How might my relocation the States affect my work? Through this dialogue one thing became clear; The event not only strives to introduce the region's diverse contemporary arts to the public, but facilitates ties between living artists, their historical influences (or communities of origin), and their new South Florida community.
