Heading to the Guggenheim in NYC? Be sure to check out Under the Same Sun: Art from Latin America Today running through October 1, 2014. Curated by Pablo León de la Barra and featuring the work of Amalia Pica, this complex exhibit seeks to deconstruct and reexamine contemporary art from Latin America both through and separated from the region's diverse history and varied influences.  

London-based Argentinian artist Amalia Pica's A ∩ B ∩ C (2013) uses multi-colored, translucent geometric shapes to explore the rigid censorship of Argentina's military junta in the 1970's, which forbade the teaching of Venn diagrams as potentially subversive material. We were initially drawn to this performance piece for its use of bold colors and geometric shapes, and continue to admire Pica's innovative use of something so simple to explore such complex and difficult subject matter.
