Eco's concept of the Open Work-an artwork that could not be completed without the viewer's participation-was highly useful for Latin American conceptualists from the late 1960s through the late 1970s because it named the collaborative and performative emphasis of their artworks. Open Work in Latin America, New York & Beyond: Conceptualism Reconsidered, 1967-1978 displays the capacious nature of conceptualism by exhibiting 91 books, video, sound, prints, drawings, installations and photography by 36 artists working in Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, New York, London, Los Angeles, Montevideo and Caracas. Although not a historical survey, the show presents a collective desire to use the body to destabilize systems of representation shared by artists from Latin America working in conceptual modes from 1967 to 1978.
