No es neutral was an exhibition dedicated to the latest and most socially committed art of Latin America.
With works by 24 artists from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Guatemala, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Uruguay, this show offered an overview of artistic creation from the 1960s to the present day.
The works in the exhibition mainly follow the conceptual strategies of contemporary art while at the same time taking up their own position in the international art panorama. Their closeness to life and their immediacy stand out, as does the commitment of many of these artists to reality. They tackle history, different political situations and violence, albeit mostly through aesthetic and poetic elements, language and evocation rather than explicit images of violence.
