Aimé Iglesias Lukin, Karen Marta (ed.), Feliciano Centurión

Through the embroidery and painting of vernacular objects such as blankets and aprons, Paraguayan artist Feliciano Centurión (1962-96) rendered poetic readings of his youth in the tropics, his experiences of love in the metropolis and his reflections prior to his untimely death from AIDS-related illness.

Since his death, Centurión’s work has been largely overlooked, only recently receiving recognition. This book traces the short but vibrant career of a remarkable artist. With essays and reproductions, it attends to Centurión’s stories of the self—his love life, his disease—but also stories of a cultural body searching for a new political expression in a changing world.

Co-edited by Aimé Iglesias Lukin and Karen Marta, this fully illustrated hardcover volume includes texts by Ticio Escobar, Jimena Ferreiro, Jorge Gumier Maier, Aimé Iglesias Lukin, Francisco Lemus, and Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro and reproduces over eighty key works by the artist, accompanied by numerous details and archival material.
