Pablo León de la Barra, Guggenheim UBS MAP Curator, Latin America, details one of Under the Same Sun’s central topics, Conceptual art practices and their legacy in contemporary Latin American art. He describes in particular the work of Alejandro Cesarco, a young Uruguayan artist based in New York. León de la Barra outlines Cesarco’s work in film and publishing, and discusses his exhibition piece Index. A series of indices for imaginary books, Index functions too as a self-portrait of its maker by revealing his highly diverse interests. [June 2014]
