Every project I have worked on has a curatorial element. From renowed artists such as Liniers (Argentina), Pedro Ruiz (Colombia) or Rukkit (Tailand) to outsider artists from Senegal, Bolivia, and the Colombia Caribbean.
Right now I’m collaborating with three artists from the Colombian Caribbean to give their work greater visibility. They define themselves as primitive artists because they have no formal education and are iliterate. Their paintings depict alternative histories that re-work the oficial history from which they, and their communities, were often excluded. In them I have found proponents of ‘tropical existencialism’ – an academic thesis I’m developing.
