Xippas Gallery is pleased to announce the next season of exhibitions in our space in Punta del
Este. The gallery renders tribute to the work of prestigious Latin-American artists under the
title “Cono Sur”. The title evidences their common geographic location, without any pretention
of becoming an artistic category; the exhibition tries to reach beyond the traditional definition
of a regional art show. More than 20 artists from Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay will come
together to show their works in different medias: sculpture, painting, drawing, photography and
installation. The big gruop of artists participating in the exhibition will include: Eduardo
Basualdo, Cao Guimarães, Leandro Erlich, Jorge Macchi, Marco Maggi, Vik Muniz, Pablo
Reinoso, Pablo Siquier, Eduardo Stupía, Janaina Tschäpe, Dani Umpi, Nicolás Uriburu, and
Since its arrival in South American, Xippas Gallery has focused on the exchange of artists
between Europe and Latin-America. The spaces of Montevideo and Punta del Este have been
developing a program around the works of renowned artists of the contemporary international
art scene, In parallel, the European spaces of Xippas Galleries have shown exhibitions of both
emerging, and established artists from all over the Cono Sur región.
Punta del Este, the international hot spot in South America during the summer time, is the ideal
location for the intercultural exchange that this exhibition Cono Sur proposes.
