‘Textural Codes’ was an exhibition of Latin American art exploring linguistic form, signs, movement and time. The show featured the work of Sofía Clausse, Carmen Mariscal, Francisca Sosa López and myself.
The exhibition was curated by Daniela Galán, assisted by Jane Soliman and held at The Koppel Project in Piccadilly between 23 October – 10 November 2020.
The exhibition was organised by Amalgama Art a London-based cultural programme that is devoted to exhibiting, promoting and championing the work of women artists from Latin America, Spain and Portugal: Ibero-America. Their aim is to challenge current gender disparities in the art world, through group and solo exhibitions, publications and a public programme of workshops and talks to increase visibility.
In the curator’s words: “ Camila Quintero’s works examine the correlation between the passing of time and the act of image-making, whether with words or forms. Words that become pure signifiers without denoting anything in particular; and in contrast, forms that portray pure significance. In creating her own words, tools and systems … Quintero’s exploration of geometrical shapes challenges
Lessing’s assumption of the static nature of the image allowing a narrative to evolve through her juxtaposition of form and colour.
