Pablo León de la Barra or Curatorship as Ludic Manifesto

Playfulness –in its most genuine and lighter expression, yet one that is capable of shaking our world imaginaries – is, like the shadow of Pablo León de la Barra, the new Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative Curator of Latin American Art, inseparable from his figure. An invaluable advantage for the contemporary art of the region, which he will bring to the iconic New York museum during his two-year residency.

Miguel López in Conversation with Cecilia Fajardo Hill

C.F.: I’d like you to tell us about your intellectual training and the ideas that appear in your work, which are inserted in fields as diverse as “queer” politics, art and protest, twentieth-century Peruvian art, memory reactivation, and the processes of “historicization” of Latin American art between the 1960s and the 1980s, ideas that are, on the one hand, specific and constitute an archaeology of little researched histories of Peru and Latin America, and that offer, on the other hand, perspectives that disavow traditional art history models and set themselves up as possible spaces of critical re-signification.

How do you approach this crossover, and what makes you decide to curate an exhibition rather than, say, writing an essay about the same artists?
