Amazones, a selection of works by Latin American women artists from the collection of Catherine Petitgas
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. Entitled 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.
