Turns and Directions: Changes in the Arts of Central America's Spanish-Speaking Nations and Panama during and after the 1950s

Aug 2010
Featuring 27 pieces from the art collections of the IDB and the Organization of American States, it is one of several smaller exhibits on Latin American art from the second half of the 20th century, and forms part of an ambitious project, ¿About Change,¿ organized by the World Bank Art Program, in association with the IDB Cultural Center and other institutions. The main exhibition, which will open in 2011, focuses on the arts produced in Latin America and the Caribbean during the last decade through the works of artists 35 years of age or younger, exploring the changes that have resulted from economic globalization and information technology. This new IDB exhibition is designed to help create a context against which the changes observed over the last ten years can be gauged.
