Post-Colonial Frames – Landing Americas it’s an exhibition that explores one of the most controversial phenomena in history: the European colonialism in the Americas, and its consequences, looking at the phenomenon from a different perspective than the traditional-eurocentric one.
The exhibition offers a selection of artworks by Native American and South American artists: installations, photographies, paintings, drawings and videoart, that stand out in their preciousness and brightness, immersed in a rarefied, white and sober atmosphere.

The complex phenomenon of colonialism is captured in its multiform nature by the sensitive eye of the contemporary artist, which reinterprets the archetypal symbols of ancient civilizations: the new vision, made of bones of large extinct animals, exotic fruit and burnt lands, allows the visitor to reflect on the legacies of the historical episode.

In the show, artworks by: Cannupa Hanska Luger, Monty Little, Jaime Orlando Vera Zarate, Gabriela Golder, Miguel Antonio Contreras Hincapié, Andres Salas, Frederico Pessoa, Mariano Goto, Deimion “Peim” Van der Sloot, Marcela Avellaneda, João R. Ferreira, Rahel Hegnauer.

Post-Colonial Frames / Landin Americas es una exposición de arte contemporáneo que intenta dar a conocer la imagen de conflictos coloniales cometidos por los europeos en las Américas, dando voz a artistas internacionales contemporáneos que vienen de los territorios colonizados.

 Entre los artistas seleccionados, Frederico Pessoa, Miguel Antonio Contreras Hincapié, Mariano Goto, Joao R. Ferreira, Jaime Vera Zarate, Marcela Avellaneda, Andrés Salas, Gabriela Golder, Rahel Hegnauer and DeimionVan der Sloot (Argentina, Venezuela, Brasil, Colombia), y los artistas nativos Cannupa Hanska Luger y Monty Little.

En la exposición, la imaginería colonial se muestra invertida, ya no se celebra la conquista en el extranjero, pero la apertura de una profunda reflexión sobre el fenómeno, la investigación de hoy sobre su legado y la herencia, a partir de las obras de los herederos de este pasado doloroso. La exposición ofrece al visitante una representación visual y sensorial de los resultados del colonialismo, la reconstrucción, con un medio de narrativas y lenguaje contemporáneo, de las conexiones que existen entre la esfera cultural que ha perpetrado la guerra colonial y lo que ocurrió en los Estados Unidos, teniendo en cuenta la obras de arte contemporáneo como fuente simbólica, rica en referencias arquetípicas.

La instalación de video arte, obras de material neo-dada, arte sonoro e interactivo, pinturas y fotografías representan los medios que usaremos. La experiencia de los visitantes será completamente libre y adecuada para los jóvenes y adultos, que deseen probar a modo de contactos multisensoriales con la compleja cuestión del colonialismo y sus consecuencias, destacando una fuerte conexión entre ayer y hoy.
