"Terence Gower : The Good Neighbour" at Americas Society
Opening of the exhibition "Terence Gower : The Good Neighbour" at Americas Society, New York.

Starting May 12th, Americas Society presents “Terence Gower : The Good Neighbour”, a solo exhibition focused on Gower’s relationship with Mexico since the early 90s, when the Canadian artist started researching Mexican modernism. At the time, his work focused primarily on architecture as a means to deconstruct traditional dichotomies of craft and design, as well as on high and low culture and the role of social classes.

“In the trinational system of cultural exchange proposed by NAFTA since the early 1990s, Gower’s diplomatic strategy seems to be that of a double agent—the good neighbor that observes, highlights, twists, and disarms the established logic behind the national identities at play.” – Aimé Lukin, Director and Chief Curator of Visual arts, Americas Society and curator of the exhibition.

This new exhibition features sculpture, video, installations and archival materials, as well as a new work named “Partial Facsimile”.

On view until July 17th, 2021.
