The exhibition Territorios: Latin American Contemporary Art in the Jorge M. Perez Collection shows a selection of works by more than 50 contemporary Latin American artists at the Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo (CAAC). It is curated by Jimena Blázquez Abascal, director of the CAAC.


The selection of works from the Jorge M. Perez Collection proposes an intellectual and emotional journey that defies the monolithic vision of Latin America.


Territorios offers an itinerary through Pérez's rich collection of Latin American art, which exceeds 2,000 works, through works by artists of diverse generations and contexts. "Ethnicity, gender, identity, violence, ritual, spirituality, materials and color are common themes and tools that the artists represented in this exhibition use to question, denounce, vindicate and turn into expression their analysis of the time in which they live from a place where authenticity and honesty prevail," explains the curator.


To build a collection is to make a journey without a precise destination. It is, above all, a vision of the world, a warp woven with the semiotics, evident or hidden, of the threads that make it up. In this way, Jorge M. Perez (1949), born in Argentina of Cuban parents, raised in Colombia and resident in Miami since 1968, businessman and philanthropist, whose name appears in one of the most prestigious art institutions in the United States, the Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), began collecting art at a very young age because "I did not want to lose my roots, forget my cultural heritage, my reason for being a Hispanic American and [...] to keep alive the link with my homeland".
