Under the Same Sun: Art from Latin America Today – at South London Gallery
This weekend is the last chance to see Under the Same Sun: Art from Latin America Today at the South London Gallery. The exhibition is free to all visitors and is the first to be shown across both the SLG’s main site and the ground floor of the former Peckham Road Fire Station. Drop in to a free tour at 1pm daily. On Saturday there is an accompanying film programme in the gallery’s Clore Studio from 11am-6pm, and on Sunday free family workshops from 2-4pm.
Under the Same Sun offers insight into contemporary art practice featuring work by over 40 artists. Under the Same Sun examines a diversity of creative responses by artists to complex, shared realities and focuses on work made by artists born after 1968, in addition to several early pioneers who were active internationally in the 1960s and ’70s, many of whom have been influenced by shared colonial and modern histories, repressive governments, economic crises, social inequality, and concurrent periods of regional economic wealth, development, and progress. Curated by Pablo León de la Barra the second exhibition of the Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative.
