Can's wait to see the upcoming show Waerwarvers: The River in Contemporary Colombian Visual and Material Culture, which will open next month at my alma mater, the museum at the Bard Garduate Center, curated by José Roca, the Curator of Latin American Art at Tate Modern. It uses the trope of the river as a conceptual device to explore the intricate ways in which culture and nature intertwine across disciplines. Today, when a majority of the population lives in cities, rivers continue to serve as the sole access to remote areas and to play a new role as the axis for a different type of economics: the black market that fuels the armed conflict that has plagued Colombia for decades. The exhibition presents the work of seventeen artists, designers, and craftspeople.
