Alternate ISBN 978-19054-64-951. Publisher's description: This bilingual volume inaugurates a series of books honoring writings by major art critics from around the world. An incisive commentator on the unexpected connections between the art of indigenous peoples and contemporary art, Paraguayan art critic/curator Ticio Escobar has been a prominent figure in Latin-American criticism for over 30 years. Combining philosophical reflection with ethnographic observation, Escobar defends the relevance of indigenous art as a creator and producer of genius forms. The essays in this volume are arranged into four thematic sections and tied together by one of the writer's most crucial ideas: the importance of distance when confronting a work of art. Escobar was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowship (1998) and the inaugural International Association of Art Critics Prize for Distinguished Contribution to Art Criticism (2011). His writings, collected here for the first time, are complimented with writings by Marek Bartelik and Adriana Almada.
