    Contemporary Art from Latin America
    “Reality of Placement” discusses some of the conditions and circumstances that are relevant to the migration globally: an idea travel, objects pass from one culture to another, etc. The artists suggest the sense of documentation, expressing a sort of presence in events, fiction or non-fiction the archive, create a conglomerate of clues that never completely stop sending information. The exhibition explores aspect that emphasized Salem as a farming and agriculture town in which most of the families and labor are from Latin American descendent. -Agriculture continues to dominate the rural setting, but modern farming and related agribusinesses now expand the countryside in addition to dairy-. The artists in the show also create a relationship between past and present, a form that stipulates its own shifting terms, constantly renewing and differentiating meaning from one moment to another. Some of the artists are accurately aware that they’re trying to capture an elegance that is quickly turning into a journey documentation of their own migration situation.
    “Reality of Placement” presents artists who have a long term relationship with their subjects and who widely use different mediums to break down barriers of neighborhood, family, identity and class. These artists reflect on ideas of merge. “Reality of Placement” addresses issues such as migration and exile. This call for a rational and creative interpretation on the action of human migration which presents particular perspectives that only art can achieve throughout different genres and media including painting, sculptures, photography, drawing, mixed media, installation and video.
