Luis Camnitzer included in the exhibition Bajo Un Mismo Sol: Arte de América Latina Hoy, curated by Pablo Leon de la Barra and organized by The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, in Museo Jumex, Mexico City.

Bajo Un Mismo Sol: Arte de América Latina Hoy reconsiders the state of contemporary art in Latin America, investigating the creative responses of artists to complex, shared realities that have been influenced by colonial and modern histories, repressive governments, economic crises, and social inequality, as well as by concurrent periods of regional economic wealth, development, and progress. The exhibition presents contemporary artistic responses to the past and present that are inscribed within this highly nuanced situation, exploring the assertions of alternative futures.

Organized by Pablo León de la Barra, Guggenheim UBS MAP Curator, Latin America, Bajo Un Mismo Sol: Arte de América Latina Hoy features works by 40 artists and collaborative duos from 15 countries. The artworks are organized around five themes: “Conceptualism and its Legacies,” “Tropicologies,” “Political Activism,” “Modernism and its Failures,” and “Participation/Emancipation.”
