NEW YORK, NY.- Art at Americas Society has announced Sylvia Palacios Whitman: To Draw a Line with the Body, the first solo exhibition and career survey of the Chilean artist in New York. The exhibition will be on view from June 7 to July 22.

Sylvia Palacios Whitman (b. Osorno, Chile, 1941) is a visual and performance artist, who has been experimenting with movement and contemporary dance since her move to New York in the early 1960s. She became an integral figure of the experimental downtown arts scene in 1970s New York, having collaborated with many American and international artists. In her solo and group performances, Palacios Whitman developed her own choreographic language, which privileged the participation of untrained performers, embraced humor and unexpected elements, and incorporated found objects and ephemeral props.

Co-curated by Aimé Iglesias Lukin, Director and Chief Curator, Art at Americas Society, and Rachel Remick, Assistant Curator, Art at Americas Society, the show will restage Palacios Whitman’s key historical works; feature sketches, video, photographic documentation of performances; and include new large-scale works on paper.

The presentation of Sylvia Palacios Whitman: To Draw a Line with the Body is made possible by generous support from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Foundation, and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature. Additional support is provided by the Ministry of Cultures, Arts, and Heritage of Chile.

Americas Society acknowledges the generous support from the Arts of the Americas Circle contributors: Amalia Amoedo, Almeida e Dale Galeria de Arte, Estrellita B. Brodsky, Virginia Cowles Schroth, Emily A. Engel, Diana Fane, Isabella Hutchinson, Carolina Jannicelli, Diana López and Herman Sifontes, Antonio Murzi, Gabriela Pérez Rocchietti, Vivian Pfeiffer, Phillips, Erica Roberts, Sharon Schultz, and Edward J. Sullivan.

Americas Society is the premier organization dedicated to education, debate and dialogue in the Americas. Established by David Rockefeller in 1965, our mission is to foster an understanding of the contemporary political, social and economic issues confronting Latin America, the Caribbean, and Canada, and to increase public awareness and appreciation of the diverse cultural heritage of the Americas and the importance of the inter-American relationship.

Come celebrate the first solo exhibition and career survey of the Chilean artist in New York.
