Space to Dream is the first major exhibition in Australasia to introduce, in depth, the art of South America, revealing how South American artists see a social significance for their work and how they have challenged, embraced, explained or transformed their realities, lives, cultures and spaces from the 1960s to today.


Developed by Chilean curator Beatriz Bustos Oyanedel and Auckland Art Gallery Principal Curator and Head of Programmes, Zara Stanhope, the show gathers works of 41 artists from across six countries – Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia and Uruguay –, such as Argentinian Liliana Porter (Buenos Aires, 1941). 


The exhibition can be visited at the Auckland Art Gallery from May 7th to September 18th, 2016. For more information, please visit the museum’s website.
