Together we raise a glass to the amazing artists, students, lecturers and wider communities who, for thirty years have supported the growth and development of the Essex Collection of Art from Latin America.
The exhibition is an homage to the many voices who have nurtured and promoted the collection. ESCALA thrives because of the continual support of students, staff, and alumni from the University of Essex, working alongside artists from Latin America across the world and the wider community who embrace art from the region.
Trinta/Treinta/Thirty celebrates the people who have played – and continue to play – a fundamental role in our history, and our future.
The exhibition includes work by Antonio Henrique Amaral, Olga Blinder, Glauco Otavio Castilho Rodrigues, Carlos Cruz- Diez, Wilson Díaz, León Ferrari, Demian Flores Cortés, Carlos Hermosilla, Hudinilson Jr, Graciela Iturbide, Yolanda López, Jorge Macchi, Anna Maria Maiolino, F Marquespenteado, Raúl Martínez, Cildo Meireles, Sandra Monterroso, Mora Brothers, Ogwa, Eduardo Padilha, Hilda Paz, Rebeca Romero, Milagros de la Torre, Cecilia Vicuña, and Mariana Yampolsky.
