Americas Society is proud to present Observed: Milagros de la Torre, a new exhibition opening Wednesday, February 8, 2012, guest curated by Dr. Edward J. Sullivan, Helen Gould Sheppard Professor of the History of Art at New York University Institute of Fine Arts. The exhibition is a collaborative project between Americas Society and Museo de Arte de Lima (MALI), which will host the concurrent exhibition Indicios: Milagros de la Torre from March 6- July 1, 2012.

Featuring nearly forty photographic works from the 1990s to the present, Observed will be the artist's first monographic show in New York. Focused on stark, object-based images, the exhibition examines contemporary issues related to violence, memory and the socio-political construction of identity. As Edward Sullivan has suggested, the notion of pain also plays a prevalent role throughout de la Torre's work. Never displayed in an active or aggressive manner, physical or emotional trauma manifests itself through quiet allusion. Several of her series develop out of her own experiences in countries that have experienced waves of crippling violence, such as Mexico, and in Peru during the years of the Shining Path, or that have had extended periods of censorship.

De la Torre begin each series with an in depth investigative process in libraries and archives. Research has served as a fundamental basis for her images, many of which are examinations on criminality and surveillance. The Lost Steps (1996) is a seminal project deeply informed by nineteenth-century photography procedures. De la Torre employed techniques from the period to focus on images of incriminating evidence taken from the archive of the Palace of Justice in Lima, Peru during the violent years of the Shining Path. The seemingly everyday objects, shown in an isolated manner, convey stories of acts of terrorism, passion, and other felonies. In Censored (2001), pages from seventeenth and eighteenth century manuscripts in the collection of the University of Salamanca Library, depict passages inked-out by inquisitors during the Spanish Inquisition. The series is encompassed by abstract images capturing the stroke and stain of each censored text.

De la Torre's subtle use of color is a practice she began engaging in with her first photographic project, Under the Black Sun (1991-1993). Inspired by basic street photography methods in her native Peru, used for purposes of national identification cards, de la Torre appropriates this technique by stopping the development process in the negative stage. She worked with these subjects, manipulating their images and experimenting with effects of light and color. Also, included in Observed: Milagros de la Torre is the never before seen series It All Stays in the Family. An exploration into concept of the family portrait, these photographs printed on vintage paper, use an 'unsynchronized' flash to produce an image that is covered in a shadow that increases from grey to deep black, therefore blurring the connective association between each relative.

A fully illustrated, bilingual publication featuring essays by Edward J. Sullivan, Miguel López and an interview between Anne Wilkes Tucker and Milagros de la Torre will be available in March 2012. This catalogue is part of the Visual Arts of the Americas Modern and Contemporary Publication Series, distributed by ARTBOOK| D.A.P.


Observed: Milagros de la Torre is co-presented by Americas Society and the Museo de Arte de Lima (MALI), Peru.
The Americas Society exhibition is made possible by the generous support of PromPerú, Eduardo Hochschild, Mundus Novus Collection, and Javier Zavala and Alexandra Bryce.

In-kind support is graciously provided by Arte al Día.

Americas Society's Visual Arts program is supported in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
