JAIME GILI: XOXOXO

In the mid 20 th Century, architects like Carlos Raúl Villanueva
encouraged Venezuelan artists to redefine public space by integrating modern architecture and visual arts. The following generations of artists grew in the midst of this coalescence, but also inherited a Country where the volatility of the oil industry as the base of a national economy was painfully demonstrated, and recently experienced in the meltdown of the democratic system in the hands of a criminal, transnational network of corruption.
Gili belongs to an extraordinary generation of Venezuelan artists who necessarily continue to re-examine the place of their practice within their inheritance of one of the most interesting Modernist movements in Latin America.
