Eugenio Dittborn, "The 23rd History of the Human Face (Aljo-Violet)"
During the regime of General Augusto Pinochet (1973–1998), this Chilean artist came up with a unique solution for making his work under the constraints of military rule: He created what he called "Airmail Paintings," basically collages of texts and images—photocopied and silk-screened—sewn on to sheets of lightweight fabric that could be folded into specially made envelopes and sent off to colleagues and friends around the world. He continued the series even after the end of the Pinochet era; this show presents examples spanning the years 1989 to 2011.
