Remains–Tomorrow: Themes in Contemporary Latin American Abstraction, by Cecilia Fajardo Hill offers a thought-provoking perspective on the dynamic field of contemporary abstraction in Latin America. It proposes abstraction as an expanded field of reality in direct dialogue with life and as a strategy for critically examining the social, political, and cultural arenas.
Highlighting 289 artists, including Amadeo Azar, Gala Berger, Ana Tiscornia, Fernanda Laguna, Osias Yanov, Guido Ignatti and Silvia Gurfein from the gallery, the book explores different manifestations of post-1990s Latin
American abstraction, underlining its relationships to and differences from modern abstraction, and examines how it may relate to issues such as gender, interculturality, contextual specificity, popular culture, and the everyday.
The book is structured by theme, and each thematic section includes an introductory essay by Cecilia Fajardo-Hill. The book also features an historical essay by Juan Ledezma, twenty-eight short texts by participating artists, biographies of all the artists, and over 700 illustrations.
Remains-Tomorrow is an Abstraction in Action initiative of the Sammy Sayago Collection.
