José Antonio Hernández-Diez

The Palm Beach Institute of Contemporary Art is proud to present the exhibition José Antonio Hernández-Diez, the first major museum exhibition in the United States of work by this acclaimed Venezuelan artist. The exhibition is organized by the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York and curated by Senior Curator Dan Cameron and Adjunct Curator Gerardo Mosquera. PBICA is the first venue of a national tour.

One of the most important Latin American artists of the last decade, Hernández-Diez creates candid, poetic, and at times disturbing and irreverent multi-media installations inspired by the vernacular culture and traditions of his home country.

The PBICA exhibition of Hernández-Diez will include 14 works created between 1991 and 2000, chosen to convey several overlapping conceptual axis that inform his work: technology and the body; marginality and vernacular culture; myth making; and an intimate, spontaneous, and enigmatic use of communication and industrial technologies.

Ausstellungsdauer: 14.9. - 17.11.2002
