October 19 - January 4, 2020
A solo exhibition featuring work by Jacqueline Nova.
“Jacqueline Nova (1935–1975) was a pioneering figure of electroacoustic music in Colombia, and one of Latin America’s most important avant-garde and experimental musicians of the 20th century. She came of age in a repressive era known to Colombians as La Violencia (“The Violence”), a period of incessant, deadly struggle between the country’s two primary political parties. This intense, perennial state of violence, the concurrent battles for women’s suffrage, and the rise of Marxist-inspired guerrillas, informed both her life and art.”
