Join Young Professionals of the Americas (YPA) for a private tour of the Americas Society’s current exhibition, Feliciano Centurión: Abrigo, led by Diana Flatto, assistant curator and YPA Internal Committee member, and Aimé Iglesias Lukin, director and chief curator at Americas Society Visual Arts. Following the tour, we invite YPA members to join us for drinks and hors d'oeuvre at a neighborhood bar.
About the exhibition
Americas Society presents the first solo exhibition of Paraguayan artist Feliciano Centurión in the United States, curated by Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro. 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.
