Clotilde Jiménez on the Cover

Joshua Bennett, Art in America, September 1, 2020

We are beyond delighted to share Clotilde Jiménez's work has been selected as the cover for the September/October issue of Art in America "Realism Today: Global Artists, New Realities."

 

Included in the issue is an interview between Clotilde, and author/professor Joshua Bennett.

 

"In a moment indelibly shaped by a wide range of black visual artists working across medium - Jiménez is a sculptor, painter, and collagist - his oeuvre stands out for both its conceptual daring and striking consistency. The animating questions of his work are both ancient and right on time. He is a joy to talk to and speaks about bodybuilding with the same facility and grace that brings to a conversation about his art practice. He is a man in love with what the poet Adam Zagajewski once called the mutilated world. Against a landscape marred by violence and unremitting constraingt, he dars to assert intimacy, pleasure, extravegance in the midst."
