A cross-generational look at the unique convergence of art and politics in Latin America, from Leandro Katz to Mauro Restiffe

Chosen Memories presents artworks that find their poetic and political vitality by mobilizing histories of Latin America. Published in conjunction with an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the publication presents artworks by contemporary Latin American artists who, over the last four decades, have looked to history as the source material for new work. Videos, photographs, paintings and sculptures, many of which were donated to the museum by the Colecci n Patricia Phelps de Cisneros in 2018, are presented in dialogue with one another.
Organized into three thematic sections, the catalog examines how artists have investigated and reimagined histories and cultural legacies of the region, including long histories of colonialism, undervalued cultural and visual heritages, and inherited and chosen kinships. The richly illustrated catalog features over 40 artists from different generations working across Latin America, including Armando Andrade Tudela, Firelei B ez, Laura Anderson Barbata, Jos Bedia, Alejandro Cesarco, Elena Damiani, Iran do Esp rito Santo, Regina Jos Galindo, Sof a Gallis Muriente, Mario Garc a Torres, Sheroanaw Hakihiiw , Leandro Katz, Gabriel Kuri, Maria Laet, David Lamelas, Suwon Lee, Anna Maria Maiolino, Gilda Mantilla, Cildo Meireles, Luis Molina Pantin, Paulo Nazareth, Las Nietas de Non , Claudio Perna, Gala Porras Kim, Naufus Ram rez Figueroa, Ros ngela Renn , Mauro Restiffe, Jos Alejandro Restrepo, Thiago Rocha Pitta, Analia Saban, Daniel Steegmann Mangran , Michael Stevenson, Adri n Villar Rojas and Las Yeguas del Apocalipsis.
