About

UNFOLD, a group show that brings together a selection of works on paper by 12 artists from Latin America and one guest artist from Hungary.

The exhibition is produced by Periferia Projects, a curatorial platform creating connections from Latin America to the UK and Europe. Periferia's focus is to develop projects with artists from emerging hubs to enhance their visibility and promote collaboration with new galleries, artists and institutions.

This show is hosted by K.A.S. Galéria based in Budapest, Hungary and founded in 1991 (a crucial moment for the transition of the Eastern European artistic scene) and focuses in discovering, presenting and connecting local and international talents within the artistic community.

UNFOLD’s approach to the Latin American & Eastern European art scenes aims to open dialogue about artistic and collecting practices in both regions to understand how they have developed and thrived through time. At a time when immigration and diversity are in the news everyday, UNFOLD is an exhibition which invites the audience to reconsider stereotypes, notions and even expectations of the Other.

Despite the instability in both regions, artists did not stop producing during the oppression of the socialist state in Eastern Europe and under Latin American military dictatorships. On the contrary, these circumstances were creative dares for artists and art promoters during adversity. Artists evolved their practices in analogue of social repression and censorship.

The exhibition showcases works on paper as a medium, seeing it as a response to the challenges faced by artists in an increasingly media-saturated world. As a curatorial choice, it seeks to enhance this group of artists' motivations when engaging with key practices and establishing their own conversations.

The exhibited artists are: Amadeo Azar (Argentina), Rodrigo Torres, Pedro Varela (Brazil), Zsófi Barabás (Hungary), Daniel Alcalá, Omar Arcega, Marcos Castro, Héctor Falcón, Jésica López, Tania López Winkler, Quirarte + Ornelas, Jacobo Alonso (Mexico), José Vera Matos (Peru).
