Synopsis

This is an announcement of the exhibition to be presented at the Centro de Arte y Comunicación [Art and Communication Center] in honor of “the leader of America, unfortunately deceased, Salvador Allende.” It names the Chilean artists who will be involved, and mentions that the works in the exhibition were created during the previous two years. It also acknowledges the uncertainty concerning specific activities organized by the CAyC that included institutions and representatives of the Chilean cultural milieu.

Annotations

In 1968, the Centro de Estudios de Arte y Comunicación [Center for Art and Communications Studies (CEAC)] was created, which, shortly after its first public event at the Galería Bonino (August–September 1969), changed its name to Centro de Arte y Comunicación [Art and Communications Center (CayC)]. Always led by Jorge Glusberg as director and theoretician, the CAyC sponsored several different artists throughout its time. In 1971, the Grupo de los Trece [Group of the Thirteen] was created, made up of Jacques Bedel, Luis Benedit, Gregorio Dujovny, Carlos Gizburg, Víctor Grippo, Jorge González Mir, Vicente Marotta, Luís Pazos, Alfredo Portillos, Juan Carlos Romero, Julio Teich, Horacio Zabala, Alberto Pellegrino, and Jorge Glusberg. Later on, some artists moved on while others were included; in 1975, the CayC Group included the participation of Bedel, Benedit, Grippo, Portillos, and Glusberg.
