The Beth Rudin Woody Collection of Latin American artists was assembled over 20 adventurous years, when Beth Rudin Woody tracked down the undiscovered studios and out-of-the-way galleries of Latin American and LatinX artists.
This show, with over 70 works created by 57 artists, gives cross-generational voice to the intense feelings of anxiety burrowing through our society today. Group anxiety, individual angst, voices of dissent plus some intensely transcendent states of a nervous joy. From a pang in the pit of your stomach, to a fleeting arc of ecstasy, these artists plumb the depths of the Latin American experience in contemporary America.
“Anxiety,” curated by Amethyst Rey Beaver and Eva Thornton in collaboration with Beth Rudin DeWoody Collection curators Maynard Monrow and Laura Dvorkin, is on exhibit in Roanoke, Virginia’s stunning new Taubman Museum.
