Campus hosts Candioti exhibition
Painter Ana Candioti’s
telling portraits of native peoples of the Americas will be on display at California
State University, Sacramento’s Union Gallery Sept. 29 - Oct. 24 as part
of Hispanic Heritage Month activities. A reception for the artist is scheduled
for 6 - 8 p.m., Oct. 1, at the University Center Restaurant. Titled “Art
and Testimony: The Faces of Our American Roots,” the exhibition features
around a dozen paintings.
Born in Buenos Aires in 1944, Candioti attended prestigious Argentinean art
schools through the early 1970s and by the middle of the decade had distinguished
herself as a national talent. Numerous shows in her country’s galleries,
cultural centers and universities followed, bringing her to the attention of
the South American art world.
Around 1980 Candioti committed herself to a national movement in Argentina exploring
the cultural traditions of native peoples. She began to focus her work on depicting
the rapidly vanishing faces of the indigenous. Her efforts and talent soon garnered
worldwide praise and invitations to exhibit her work internationally. Candioti
is now a resident of Miami, where she has a studio and gallery.
