Botero’s famous obese figures travel the world

Botero’s famous obese figures travel the world
Posted by Claire Dennis on Oct 27, 2015

The sculptures of nationally and internationally famous Colombian artist Fernando Botero recently embarked on a world-wide tour to support Latin American art.

Miami marks the primary destination of Botero’s unique works. 15 of his sculptures were recently put on display in Bayfront Park of Miami, Florida for the Latin-influenced population to view.

Chosen by the Nader Latin American Art Museum as their first exposition to promote Latin American artists, Botero’s distinguished obese women dressed in bronze will remain in Miami until January 2016 and participate in the world-renowned art festival, Art Basel.

These bronze women, which together conform Botero’s exposition known as Monumental Sculptures, were also lucky enough to fly to Paris, Venice, New York, Tokyo and Athens, among other global culture centers, before arriving in Miami.

1. Very good

It reminds me of much older art while having a modern perspective.

2. I find the terrible distress of the prisoners and the abject uncaring of the CIA operatives

Very, very disturbing. And it should be.

I hope we continue to document this inhumanity in many ways and for centuries to come. The Cheney's of the world should not be able to escape their misdeeds.
