Folk art and queer aesthetics: the last publication of Americas Society printed by Faenza Group
Faenza Group was recently commissioned by Americas Society, New York to print and produce their recent publication on the Paraguayan artist Feliciano Centurión (1962-96).
Centurión created textile works engaging with folk art and queer aesthetics in 1990s South America. The stand alone monograph was published to coincide with Abrigo, the first exhibition titled of the artist’s work in the United States which was curated by Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro, and reproduces 80 key works along with numerous details and archival material.
The majority of Centurión’s works reproduced in the book were photographed in New York especially for this publication. This included the work Untitled (1994) which appears in a wrap-around detail on the cover of the book.
