El arte de la desobediencia "The Art of Disobedience" at MAMBO

02/August/2018



Bogotá, Colombia


The Museo de Arte Moderno de Bogota (MAMBO) will turn 55 in October. To celebrate the momentous occasion the institution organized the exhibition titled "The Art of Disobedience," a show that attempts to offer a gaze into the radical decades of contemporary art in Colombia through a selection of over one hundred works from the MAMBO's collection created between 1965 and 1984. Two moments in the history of the museum mark the beginning and end of the period covered in the exhibition: the opening of the space in the Universidad Nacional (1965) and the organization of the last Athens Salon (1984), before the museum was relocated to its definitive location.


The curators of the exhibition, María Wills, Sylvia Suárez, and Carmen María Jaramillo, selected works from among the more than 3,600 pieces that are part of the museum's collection. The goal was to exhibit works never before shown to the public along with a museological discourse that showcased a young generation of artists that proposed a revolution through art and against that which was regarded as the political, religious, and sexual norms of the time. The selected works also served to question the more contemplative role played by landscape artists an offered new expressive mediums like performance and street posters. The exhibition will remain open until October.
