Archived: Space to Dream

at the Auckland Art Gallery

From Saturday 7 May, experience the inspirational and imaginative exhibition, Space to Dream: Recent Art from South America.

Opening a window to the influential art of eight South American countries from the 1960s to today, Space to Dream is the first comprehensive exhibition of its kind to be generated in Australasia.

The exhibition conveys the sense of South America as a place of vitality, constant change and possibility. It reveals the ways art has offered a space for its people to reflect, act and dream throughout the region’s politically and socially turbulent history

Discover artists, rebels and dreamers in Space to Dream, which includes work by Martín Sastre from Uruguay, León Ferrari and Marcos Lopez from Argentina, Ernesto Neto, Lygia Clark and Hélio Oiticia from Brazil, Alfredo Jaar, Lotty Rosenfeld and Bernardo Oyarzun from Chile, Juan Fernando Herrán from Columbia and many more.
