‘Abstracto/Latino’ : Art From Local Latinx Artists Working in Abstraction on Display Until Jan. 21

View Online and at the Block Gallery

Abstracto/Latino: Latin American with an Abstract Fusion is an exhibition highlighting Latinx artists living in North Carolina who are working in abstraction.

This exhibition, curated by Georges Le Chevallier, questions the preferred notion in the United States that Latinx Art is based on Magical Realism, Politics or Regionalism. This exhibition brings together Latinx artists who are working in different styles of abstraction. These artists are exploring diverse art movements such as North American Abstract Expressionism, French Cubism, Russian Constructivism, and Japanese Shibui, without ever losing their Latin American roots.

Featured Artists

  • Lope Max Diaz
