Americas Society is pleased to invite you to the first solo exhibition of Paraguayan artist Feliciano Centurión in the United States, curated by Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro. Centurión created work engaging with folk art and queer aesthetics in 1990s South America. Through the embroidery and painting of these vernacular objects, 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.
