This exhibition explores the connection between imperialist violence and gender violence through the presentation of the body of the women as a metaphor for the invaded territory and space violated by the patriarchy. The works
selected ones provoke dialogues about extractivism and settlement in Latin America and how these incursions affect and attack feminized bodies.

Time - how we conceive it and perceive it - is relative. The current rhythm of life in our context is the result of a process of colonialism and extractivism defined by external powers. Although it seems out of our control, we want to think that it is possible to resist these conditions by reconsidering or even changing the idea of time that governs us. This exhibition proposes to understand time from a more generous approach with all living beings, incorporating the different rhythms of nature as more appropriate time markers to cope with life.

ABSENCE - PRESENCE: Latinx and Latin American artists share not only a colonial legacy and a history of violence, but a sophisticated and ongoing legacy of political imagination and artistic experimentality. This exhibition proposes a dialogue between Latinx and Latin American artists on the determining but often inconspicuous imposed domain of absence and presence coexisting both in society and the art world.

Historically around the world women have been erased, hidden, or set aside in many scopes, including art. The Latin American region has and is still doing this nowadays. Currently, only 2% of yearly expositions are curated by or include women. The number of ideas to be expressed have become overwhelming in the regions where they systematically leave us voiceless.
