The book Remains–Tomorrow: Themes in Contemporary Latin American Abstraction offers a thought-provoking perspective on the dynamic field of contemporary abstraction in Latin America, featuring among many others, works by artists Patrick Hamilton, Macaparana and José Vera Matos.

Here in this book, abstraction is proposed as an expanded field of reality in direct dialogue with life and as a strategy for critically examining the social, political, and cultural arenas. Featuring 280 artists, the book explores different manifestations of post 1990s Latin American abstraction and their underlying relationships to and differences from modern abstraction. Essays by Cecilia Fajardo-Hill and Juan Ledezma, 28 texts by participating artists as well as biographies and over 700 illustrations, examine issues such as gender, interculturality and popular culture. The unique polyphony and almost infinitely artistically diverse positions it an indispensable reference book on Latin American abstraction.

The book features Ed. Cecilia Fajardo-Hill, foreword by Sammy Sayago, preface by Cecilia Fajardo-Hill, text(s) by Cecilia Fajardo-Hill, Juan Ledezma, graphic design by Aixa Díaz
