Organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, UltraBaroque focuses on a critical re-reading of the Baroque in Latin America and its use by contemporary artists as an important cultural metaphor. Containing approximately seventy-five works by fifteen artists from South America, Mexico, the Caribbean and the United States, the exhibition explores cultural differences and the impact of globalization on visual thought.
Ultrabaroque: Aspects of Post-Latin American Art was originated by the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, with support from The Rockefeller Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Wallace-Reader's Digest Funds, The Mandell Weiss Charitable Trust, Continental Airlines, Mary Keough Lyman, Christie's, and Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes. Related programs are funded, in part, by The James Irvine Foundation, the San Diego Commission for Arts and Culture, and the California Arts Council.
