STATE OF SITE: ART OF THE NORTHERN BORDER The outskirts of Latin American Art, has always passed through the paths of marginalization and exclusion, exceptions in international markets, nor recount important milestones of styles, currents or creative art of a local export. The advanced crossed the Atlantic in the years of the avant-garde and the neo-developed, in'80 and'90, landed in the country's north. So it is valid to state that we do not have a common denominator, or imprints that at least reached the level of flow, with the exception of the Group Argentine Madi, who at the beginning of the fifties, embraced the tenets of geometry. The Chilean art is peripheral to the international respect and of the provinces (regions) is the periphery of the Chilean art. So, from our identity "peripheral" constitute an eclectic group, not only gestuality and low projection toward the centers of mass. Our motherland, has given us lots of talents in various areas of the plastic, especially painters and sculptors. But we were unable to Engrande flow, not least speeches or theories, allowing the history of events in the visual arts in recent years, at the local level. The concept of matria was used in ancient times to refer to the land of birth and sentiment. As time is maintained thanks to the literary tradition and poetic, mainly in Galician and Portuguese. Edgar Morin uses when referring to the matria Europe, while Miguel de Unamuno used it to refer to the Basque matria. Simply identify the actions of each of the local agents of the cultural system in order to establish whether it is the actual existence of a local scene. Because local scene so that there are certain conditions be met. It is not enough that a site has simply artists, so that scene, requires a degree of institutionalization of relations between the various actors. So if we can have an identity, which is recognized throughout our motherland. SALVADOR LAURIANI OLIVARES OCTOBER 2009
