The Art Museum of the Americas in Washington, D.C. showcases the work of artists from South America. “Americas Now” recently talked to one of the artists featured at AMA. Chilean painter Jorge Tacla is this week’s Urban Voice.
Tacla’s exhibit is called “Hidden Identities.” It re-lives the pain of catastrophic events. It also looks at the relationship between victims and their aggressors.
Jorge Tacla takes moments of history and illustrates what he describes as “sickness in the brain.” Two of his works center around his own memories of Chile’s Coup d’ etat and the September 11th terror attacks in New York City.
“Hidden Identities” consists of 130 pieces, but Tacla keeps adding to the collection. The exhibit is traveling through various cities along the east coast of the United States.
