Americas Society Art Gallery Reopens to the Public

Feliciano Centurion

Exhibition view of Feliciano Centurión: Abrigo.

September 22, 2020

America Society reopens its Visual Arts Galleries on Wednesday September 23, and Feliciano Centurión: Abrigo will run through November 20.

Book your one-hour time slot from Wednesday through Friday, 12 to 6 p.m. for groups of up to six people. Walk-in visits will only be possible as capacity at the time allows.

Feliciano Centurión: Abrigo is the first solo exhibition in the United States by the artist (b. 1962, San Ignacio de las Misiones, Paraguay; d. 1996, Buenos Aires). Centurión created textile works engaging with folk art and queer aesthetics in 1990s South America. Through the embroidery and painting of vernacular objects such as blankets and aprons, Centurión rendered poetic readings of his youth in the tropics, his love experiences in the metropolis, and his spiritual reflections before his untimely death due to AIDS-related illness.

This exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated pocketbook. Americas Society is also celebrating the reopening with the publication of Feliciano Centurión the first comprehensive monograph on the artist’s work, with the support of the Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA).

Join us on September 30 for a virtual book launch with Americas Society Visual Arts Director Aimé Iglesias Lukin, Gabriel Perez Barreiro, curator of Feliciano Centurión: Abrigo, and Pablo León de la Barra, Latin America curator at the Guggenheim Museum Karen Marta, co-editor, Feliciano Centurión.
