The Guatemalan photographer Luis González Palma, now a resident of Argentina, has a solo exhibition opening at the Art Museum of the Americas (AMA) in Washington, DC, at the end of the month. AMA’s mission is to show artists whose work involves and elicits social and political discourse. Un Lugar sin Reposo/A Place with no Rest consists of photographs in which the artist juxtaposes elements creating narratives that reference his cultural heritage. The repetition of themes and images in the portraits and scenarios conveys the idea of time passing.
Art Museum of the Americas, Washington, DC, 28 March–26 May 2013.
