Luis Camnitzer included in the exhibition Under the Same Sun: Art from Latin America Today, curated by Pablo Leon de la Barra and organized by the Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative, at South London Gallery, United Kingdom.

Curated by Pablo León de la Barra, Guggenheim UBS MAP Curator, Latin America, in collaboration with the South London Gallery, the exhibition highlights recently acquired works by more than 20 artists working with mediums and methods including installation, painting, performance, photography, sculpture, and video. Participating artists include: Carlos Amorales, Tania Bruguera, Marianna Castillo Deball, Raimond Chaves and Gilda Mantilla, Minerva Cuevas, Jonathas de Andrade, Wilson Diaz, Rafael Ferrer, Alfredo Jaar, Runo Lagomarsino, Carlos Motta, Rivane Neuenschwander, Damian Ortega, Amalia Pica, Wilfredo Prieto, Paul Ramirez Jonas, Gabriel Sierra, Erika Verzutti, and Carla Zaccagnini.

With a focus on work made by artists born after 1968, in addition to several early pioneers who were active internationally in the 1960s and ’70s, Under the Same Sun at the South London Gallery examines a diversity of creative responses by 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 will be the first to be housed in both the SLG’s main site and the ground floor of its new building, a neighbouring former Fire Station currently under restoration.
