The exhibition “Beyond The Tropics” is the result of the work of 12 artists reflecting upon social differences caused by economic inequalities.
Beyond The Tropics is the third and last phase of the project titles Sobre paradoxes democràtiques (On Democratic Paradoxes), and it showcases the works of a dozen international artists as they reflect on social, political and economic inequality. The exhibition is displayed as an open conclusion that arises from the forays of the first two phases Hic et Nunc and Ibi et Nunc, into the American continent.
The exhibition puts the spotlight on new artists and works in thelight of the evolution of some of the project’s initial considerations. That is why Beyond the Tropics has been conceived as a discursive action that can only take place after having displayed, exchanged and expanded one’s horizons and reflections. All of the artists hail from and live in ostensibly democratic countries but, as we all know, this does not in any way guarantee basic welfare or fundamental rights. The twelve selected works contain clear and direct proposals and denunciations. Thus, their political essence is used to point an accusatory finger through artistic practice.
