Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0979562953, Paperback)Pre-Columbian Remix considers the ways in which contemporary Latin American artists appropriate and reinvent images and ideas from the pre-Columbian cultures of ancient America. The exhibition focuses on the work of four leading artists¿Enrique Chagoya, Demián Flores, Rubén Ortiz-Torres, and Nadín Ospina. These artists address universal questions related to national history and identity, the fetishization of the art object, and the widespread reproduction and commercialization of both real and fake artifacts. Using humor and irony, they borrow from popular culture to create works of art, including paintings, prints, photographs, and sculpture, that are deeply rooted in the past, but also address contemporary issues such as political corruption, immigration, war, mass industry, and consumption. Pre-Columbian Remix considers not only the art of the past, but also our way of perceiving and reinventing the past.
