Part of El Museo’s FOCOS series, which highlights groundbreaking, mature, yet underrecognized artists, this traveling retrospective highlights three decades of work by Uruguayan conceptual artist and writer Luis Camnitzer. Born in 1937 in Germany, raised in Uruguay, and working in New York for the past three decades, Camnitzer creates works in a variety of media — including installation, printmaking, drawing and photography — that expose our collective indifference to the violence governments inflict on individuals. A pioneer of conceptual art, Camnitzer critiques current political realities with a perspective informed by his first-hand experience of dictatorships in Latin America.
