Anti Tropicalia gathers various bodies of work that evidence Carlos
Amorales’ long trajectory in the fine arts. This exhibition explores his
zeal for drawing and music as research tools, as well as his interest
in generating individual and collaborative works. For this show at the
Museo de Arte y Diseño Contemporáneo de Costa Rica, Amorales presents
drawings made between 2012 and 2015 –some monumental and others small
scale– that evidence his affinity with graphic arts (he has created
posters, newspapers, prints, album covers, and numerous publications)
and his great fascination with music in all of its genres and forms.
Aditionally, it includes a series of video works that are directly
related to music, among which can be highlighted his collaborations with
Julián Lede and Joaquín Orellana.
