Chilean Art in Asia

Chilean Art in Asia

Fundación Imagen de Chile

October 22, 2010

Contemporary Chilean art will be presented at two major art museums in Asia: the TODAY ART MUSEUM in Beijing, China, and the MORI ART MUSEUM in Tokyo, Japan. This will happen thanks to the launch of the second edition of COPYING EDEN. RECENT ART IN CHILE, a book edited by the international critic and curator Gerardo Mosquera. At Today Art Museum the event will take place on October 23rd, in the context of the exhibition Negotiations, curated by Huang Du, who with Gerardo Mosquera will present the book and discuss Chilean art. On October 25th the publication will be launched at Mori Art Museum by Mosquera and Mami Kataoka, the Museum’s curator-in-chief.

Copying Eden. Recent Art in Chile is the most extensive bibliographic source on contemporary Chilean art yet published. The book’s 650 pages and over 500 color images present work from 1973 to the present, featuring 74 artists, among them Gonzalo Díaz, Eugenio Dittborn, Juan Downey, Paz Errázuriz, Alfredo Jaar, Iván Navarro and Lotty Rosenfeld. It includes images of many other artists that illustrate an introduction by the editor and six essays by prominent critics and scholars like Nelly Richard and Adriana Valdés. The publication also includes the most comprehensive bibliography ever compiled on the subject, among other materials.

The book has already been launched with great success at MALBA in Buenos Aires, the Tate Modern in London, the Sao Paulo MOMA, the 53rd Venice Biennial, the MACBA in Barcelona, and at New York University. Copying Eden‘s first edition was so well received that it went out of print swiftly, and a second edition was necessary, as the book has become a fundamental reference for those interested in Latin American art.
