Phoenix Art Museum to Present Halle Collection of Contemporary Latin American Art

Phoenix Art Museum presents Order, Chaos, and the Space Between: Contemporary Latin American Art from the Diane and Bruce Halle Collection, beginning February 6, 2013. This expansive exhibition features many of the most cutting-edge contemporary works produced in Latin American today and is drawn from the Halle Collection, internationally renowned as one of the most significant collections of art of this region. It includes more than 50 works from Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, Mexico, Peru, and Venezuela by artists such as Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Helio Oiticica, and Doris Salcedo, as well as many other innovative artists whose works figure prominently in today's global art scene.

The Halles' dedication to building a compelling, impactful collection of photography, sculpture, paintings, and installations will come to life on the walls of the Museum. One of the most striking installations-the 30,000 individual black paper moths and butterflies that comprise Carlos Amorales' (Mexico) Black Cloud, will be installed by the artist and will weave its path through the Museum and lead visitors to the exhibition.

The exhibition features a wide range of artworks created after 1945 that push the limits of how the creative process itself can be conceived in expressive, conceptual, abstract, and ultimately, groundbreaking forms. The exhibition, like the Halle Collection itself, seeks to broaden the community's understanding and awareness of Latin American art. In this way, the exhibition occupies a kind of 'space between,' juxtaposed between what is familiar, our preconceived ideas of Latin American art, and the reality and future of this art.
