Join ArtTable Florida Chapter for a tour of the first large-scale U.S. retrospective of the work of Bogotá-based artist Beatriz González (b. 1938, Bucaramanga, Colombia) lead by Tobias Ostrander, Chief Curator and Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs.

At 81, González is not only an internationally celebrated Colombian artist but also one of the few extant representatives of the so-called “radical women” generation from Latin America. Despite the fact that it spans over six decades of intensive research, her groundbreaking production is, for the most part, unfamiliar to audiences in the United States. One of the most comprehensive displays of the artist’s work to date, this retrospective seeks to remedy this lag by presenting approximately 150 works, with examples from the early 1960s through the present, all of which embody the full scope of González’s oeuvre.


Tobias Ostrander has served as Chief Curator and Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs at the Pérez Art Museum since 2011. He oversees the diverse programming of this museum’s Herzog and de Mueron designed building that opened in December of 2013. At PAMM he has curated projects by Mario Garcia Torres, Édouard Duval-Carrié, Geoffrey Farmer, Leonor Antunes, Jeff Wall, Sheela Gowda, David Reed and Meiro Koizumi, as well as organized the first major U.S. surveys of the work of Beatriz Milhazes and Julio Le Parc. His recent group exhibitions include On the Horizon: Contemporary Cuban Art from the Jorge M. Pérez Collection and Poetics of Relation, an exhibition inspired by the writings of the Martinique-born poet Édouard Glissant. Prior to relocating to Miami, he worked in Mexico City from 2001 to 2011, first as the Curator of Contemporary Art at the Museo Tamayo (2001–2009) and then as Director of El Museo Experimental El Eco (2009–2011). From 1999 to 2001 he served as Associate Curator of inSITE2000, a bi-national public art project in the border region of San Diego and Tijuana. From 1997 to 1998 he was an Assistant Curator on the XXIV Bienal de São Paulo.

Tour begins promptly at 6:30pm.
