Full Details

The title of the exhibition ‘deterritorialization’ was chosen by the artist and hints at historical demarcations and their elimination and replacement by new ones. In this exhibition we will be presenting Miguel Angel Ríos’ ‘Mapas’, made between 1992 and 2000, for the first time in the Netherlands.

 

Born in Catamarca, Argentina, Miguel Angel Ríos chose to settle in the USA in the 1970’s and lived and worked later in both the USA and Mexico. In the early 1990’s Rios started working on his ‘Mapas’. No doubt that Rios’ interest was triggered by the five hundredth celebration of the discovery of the Americas in 1992.
