Atavism: An Ancestral Calling is curated and organized by Charlie Elo Liriano. The exhibition is open to the public and will be on view from October 9 - October 11, 2021 at 208 Bowery Street New York, NY 10012.
Atavism: An Ancestral Calling takes a deeper look at the history of indigenous people and their descendants from the Caribbean, Central and South America. At the core of this exhibit, Atavism showcases a fundamental awareness of how we study art across different contexts and the different models of analysis.
In this way, the exhibition ponders the principles and meanings of art inspired by people of Native descent across the Latin American diaspora. Atavism highlights different mediums explored and styles with a collective theme of ancestral legacy.
Artists and artist collectives from Latin America have long grappled with issues of national and regional identity, authenticity and the decolonization of culture.
The exhibition features works by a diverse group of artists such as Marthalicia Matarrita, Albertus Joseph, Ralph Serrano, Albert Areizaga, Angie LM Vasquez, Giannina Gutierrez, Eileen Alcalde, Micheal Casiano, Nia Andino, Alex Reynoso, Jacqui Martinez, Rush Humphrey, and James Polanco.
These artworks are produced by artists that come from countries including Colombia, The Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Honduras, Peru, Puerto Rico and Belize.
The opening reception takes place Saturday, October 9th from 5pm - 9pm.
Sunday hours are from 4pm - 9pm and Monday the final day of the exhibition hours are 3pm - 7pm.
