“Inferno tropical” is part of a set of exhibitions called Female Voices of Latin America, inaugurated within the framework of International Women’s Day 2021 and is organized by the London-based collective and platform Vortic. “We are in a historical moment characterized by the increasingly constant and diverse transitions of experiences and exhibition spaces towards the virtual world. Faced with this current global scenario, the MADC chooses to join this series of transformations and virtualize part of its programming for 2021. In this particular case with ‘Inferno Tropical’, which is developed not only with the intention of creating new relationships at the international level, but also with the purpose of sharing within the framework of said commemoration, the work and the voices of some of the regional contemporary artists with increasingly wide and varied audiences ”, expressed José Picado, co-curator of the exhibition.
