Y.ES’ “Transgressions” Opens at 1111 Lincoln Road

No contributor

“Trangressions,” an exhibition curated by Y.ES, an exchange program focusing on El Salvadorian contemporary art, opened to more than 350 guests in Miami Beach on December 3. Taking place at 1111 Lincoln, the exhibition featured works by renowned Salvadoran artist Simon Vega, Guatemala-based Regina Jose Galindo, Salvadorans Crack Rodriguez and Kevin Baltazar, and a performance of Untitled (Double Face) by Naama Tsabar. Highlights included a social sculpture by Vega, Rocket Bar, made of canvas and found objects commissioned by Mario Cader-Frech for the event; and Baltazar’s intervention that featured two models intertwined with plastic green cord, the same kind used to make inexpensive furniture in El Salvador.

Y.ES, was made possible by The Robert S. Wennett and Mario Cader-Frech Foundation, who have been committed to supporting Salvadorian and Latin American artists for over a decade. In 2013 the Foundation teamed up with curator Claire Breukel and artist Vega to produce Y.ES Collect Contemporary El Salvador, the first publication and bilingual e-book of contemporary Salvadoran art accessible to audiences globally.
