Los Carpinteros have been selected for the group exhibition ‘Contingent Beauty: Contemporary Art from Latin America’ at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. An exquisite selection of drawings, sculptures, videos, interactive objectsand installationsby 21 established artists from the region, the show draws primarily from the Museum’s permanent collection of modern Latin American Art. As such, juxtapositions are built around the interpretation of “beauty”, such as seduction and repulsion, or elegance and brutality, to address the complex historical as well as socio-political realities of Latin America. For this occasion, Los Carpinteros are presenting the installation “Podgaric Toy” (2013).
