Curated by Elda Harrington and Silvia Mangialardi, Diálogos Australes / Southern Dialogs features the work of eleven artists of Chile and Argentina who photograph what is their own: landscapes and their influence, artisanal work and trades in extinction, precarious living conditions, isolation, customs and their transmission, among other significant topics.

They now open this dialog to the world at large, which allows us to notice similarities and differences in their concerns, to take a glimpse into the relationship they maintain with art and the affinity they manifest between their reality and verisimilitude of photography, to share and compare experiences. Perhaps the approach and exchange of new ideas will facilitate a rapprochement between peoples.

List of artists:
  • Laura Antonelli (Argentina)
  • Fabián España Rivera (Chile)
  • Claudio Frías Beyer (Chile)
  • Cristhian Garabito Altamirano (Chile)
  • Jonaz Gómez Sánchez (Chile)
  • Alejandro Gulminelli (Argentina)
  • Alejandra Lafón Vilugrón (Chile)
  • Marcelo Mascareño Cortez (Chile)
  • Tania Morgado Jofré (Chile)
  • Gerardo Schachner (Argentina)
  • María Zorzon (Argentina)

As a way of continuing our programming while the physical space is closed in accordance with COVID-19 regulations, the OAS AMA | Art Museum of the Americas has created a new virtual exhibition program titled #AMAatHome, whose aim is to present to our audiences with the content that would otherwise be available both within and beyond the walls of the physical museum.

To this end, #AMAatHome uses four social media platforms as museum walls: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube. The curatorial process is challenged by the limitations of each platform, and enhanced by the opportunities that are not available in the physical museum. This sort of social media exhibition allows the AMA to reach not only the audience that may visit the museum in person to the degree that they are able to, but to also reach a worldwide audience that may never enter the physical museum, whether due to geographic location, disability, or any number of other factors.

Art Museum of the Americas is located at 201 18th Street NW.
