An exhibition featuring photography, sculpture, mixed media, video and installation works by the leading Latin American, contemporary artists working today.
Voluntary omission, erasure, withholding and concealment: these are the methods the artists in Limited Visibility employ in order to draw attention to that which is missing. The representations of absence such as the missing object of labor in Allora and Calzadilla's sandpaper composition or the cutouts in Jose Davila's photographs play a key role in this exhibition as they determine, border and define the void they surround. What we see in these images, paintings and installations is what is not there: each work absents presence and presents something absent. Seer, seen and unseen come together here to evoke the haunted sensation of searching and looking. Though the aims of each of the works in this exhibition are different-from a demand for political representation to the materialization of an otherwise ephemeral moment-the artists in Limited Visibility draw our attention to the omitted, giving it a kind of determination or persistence that is hard to ignore. In each case, the viewer is required a certain amount of belief to fill in that which is not visibly available-these are not riddles, but questions with actual answers in the form of artworks.
