Model Kits: Thinking Latin America from the MUSAC Collection
Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Castilla y León, Castilla y Leon, León, 06/26/2010 - 01/09/2011
From 26 June 2010 to 9 January 2011, within its 5th Anniversary programme, the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León will be devoting its entire exhibition space to a major exhibition displaying most of the pieces by over 40 Latin American artists held in the MUSAC Collection. Under the title MODEL KITS. Thinking Latin America from the MUSAC Collection, the show curated by Agustín Pérez Rubio (MUSAC Director), María Inés Rodríguez (MUSAC Head Curator) and Octavio Zaya (MUSAC curator at large), invites viewers to trace their own course through contemporary Latin American art, over a layout designed by architect Andreas Angelidakis. In parallel, all activities scheduled at MUSAC between June 2010 and January 2011 will focus on Latin America, including new projects at Laboratorio 987 and the Showcases, artist workshops, publications, seminars, performances, concerts, etc.
MODEL KITS is the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León’s fourth major exhibition of its Collection works, after Emergencias (April – August 2005), Fusion (December 2005 – April 2006) and Existencias (September 2007 – January 2008). The show will also be the first chance to see many of the MUSAC Collection's latest acquisitions made between 2007 and 2010, all of which are included in the book MUSAC Collection Volume III, to be presented on 26 June.
