‘It has  been two centuries, twice a hundred years since independence and nonetheless the vestiges of colonisation still remain…’ comments Tere Chad, the curator of Neo Norte. Neo Norte is an exhibition that proposes the south as the new north. The show opens up the debate about the dominance of Eurocentric curatorial practices, and how this impact cultures that remain behind. The proposal reflects about why,  at times, there appears to exist a pejorative against Latin American art. In response, Neo Norte invites to a dialogue of ethnic, folkloric, and western artworks in the same space.

The artworks showcased during this exhibition are inspired by broad topics, such as: cultural syncretism, migrations as creative destructions that can open doors for new opportunities, shamanism from a Pre-Columbian and western perspective, and last but not least, the contrast between digital and physical materiality in the old and the new continent.

Neo Norte was presented for the first time in August 2018 at the Fundación Cultural de Providencia, Santiago, Chile. Now it will be displayed for the second time at Exposed Arts Projects, located at 4-6 Drayson Mews, Kensington, London W8 4LY (close to High Street Kensington tube station). It will form part of a series about ‘Empowerments’ exhibited at this space. The private view takes place on the 10th of September at 6pm. Afterwards the show will open to the public until October 22nd.
