PROXYCO presents the works of emerging and mid-career artists from Latin America.
Through exhibitions with artists that we represent as well as collaborations with galleries from Latin America and beyond, we aim to advance the understanding of work by artists of Latin American descent in an international art context. For PROXYCO, the term “Latin American” is not an essentializing classifier, but rather a fluid framework to value and engage with art that is informed by both a distinct cultural heritage and an ever-widening global perspective.
Located in Manhattan’s Lower East Side, PROXYCO was founded by Alexandra Morris (b. Mexico City) and Laura Saenz (b. Bogota).
