The Marvelous Real, the new exhibition at the Cultural Center of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) in Washington DC, is a visual tour that highlights the complexities, challenges and singularities of Colombia through the eyes of several of its most important artists.
The exhibition artworks are part of the IDB Art Collection and were selected and organized chronologically according to the different periods in which the artists worked. The visual journey begins with pre-Columbian replicas, continuing with the reinvention of the territory from the 15th to the 19th centuries, the 20th century and through the early 1950s with the beginning of contemporary art, the social transformations of the 1960s, the decentralization of art in the 1970s, and concludes with works of the end of the century.
The exhibit features 36 pieces by 24 artists including Edgar Negret, Fanny Sanín, Enrique Grau, David Manzur and Eduardo Ramírez Villamizar, among others.
