Memento: A Retrospective Exhibition by Tomas Ochoa

Thursday, Dec 26, 2019 at 11:00am

Museum Of Latin American Art
628 Alamitos Avenue
Long Beach, CA 90802

Tomás Ochoa (Ecuador, b. 1969) is a South American artist whose work challenges established historical narratives. Since 2016, Ochoa has lived and worked in Colombia and studied the legacy of colonialism through economic development and political events. His images capture their effects on the local landscape and the experiences of the country’s most vulnerable inhabitants. 

Antología Memento (Memento Anthology) presents sixteen large panels that depict Colombia’s landscape, architecture, and peoples. Ochoa rewrites Latin American history by highlighting the events that have literally shaped the jungles and buildings of the country. The works become an illustrated and updated timeline that joins Colombia’s present reality with its hidden past.
