Rivane Neuenschwander is included in 'Amazones' at Art Paris

Art Paris, Paris, France

As part of the focus on Latin America, Art Paris is hosting a selection of some 30 works by Latin American women artists from the collection of Catherine Petitgas. Titled Amazones, this exhibition brings together works by women artists from the countries of the Amazon basin, mainly from Brazil, Colombia, Peru and Venezuela. All of these artists address the question of female identity, in particular in ethnic minorities, as well as the tropical aesthetic of these biodiversity-rich regions whose environment is threatened.

Catherine Petitgas is a London-based collector and art historian specialising in modern and contemporary art and more particularly Latin American art. She chairs the Franco-British Fluxus Art Projects initiative, the Gasworks Triangle Network international artist-in-residence programme and the Tate International Council. She is a member of the board of directors of the Amis du Centre Pompidou and the Guggenheim Collections Council. She was executive editor of Contemporary Art Brazil, Contemporary Art Mexico and Contemporary Art Colombia, published by Thames and Hudson and TransGlobe.
