Feliciano Centurión’s work embraced the cultural traditions and artistic milieux of his native Paraguay and his adopted home of Argentina, where he lived from 1974 until his death in 1996. His textiles incorporated Indigenous Paraguayan embroidery techniques, and his later practice engaged with that of his contemporaries associated with the Centro Cultural Ricardo Rojas in Buenos Aires, including Ana López and Marcelo Pombo.

Organized in conjunction with the exhibition Ñande Róga: The Feliciano Centurión Archival Collection at the Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA), this panel will explore the traditions, social contexts, and artistic circles that inspired Centurión’s work. It will feature presentations by artist K.ari.n Schneider and curator Rosario Güiraldes and a conversation moderated by curator Aimé Iglesias Lukin. The program will conclude with a reception at ISLAA.

Schneider will discuss Centurión’s early work and reflect on her experience engaging with the Feliciano Centurión Papers in the ISLAA Library and Archives. During her presentation, Güiraldes will speak about the context of the Centro Cultural Ricardo Rojas in the 1990s and queer artist communities in Buenos Aires.

This event is open to the public and will take place in person at ISLAA, located at 50 East 78th Street in New York. Capacity is limited, and attendees are required to register online in advance. If you have signed up but are no longer able to attend, please email [email protected] so that others may register.

This panel is presented on the occasion of Ñande Róga: The Feliciano Centurión Archival Collection, curated by Eduardo Andres Alfonso, Angelica Arbelaez, María Carri, Rachel Eboh, Laura Hakel, Kyle Herrington, and Guy Weltchek, at ISLAA. This exhibition originally opened in December 2021 at the Hessel Museum of Art in Annandale-on-Hudson, NY, and was the culminating project of a graduate seminar led by K.ari.n Schneider at the Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, as part of the ISLAA Research Seminar Initiative.
