“Titled URGENT!, the 41st National Artists’ Salon in Cali, Colombia was one of the most refreshing exhibitions I have seen in years. It presented both a younger generation of remarkable Latin American artists who are little known outside their home countries (Mateo López, Nicolas Paris, Johanna Calle, Marcelo Cidade, Gabriel Sierra) and a more mature group of artists who are not often seen outside the region (Leon Ferrari, Adolfo Bernal, Bernando Salcedo, Luis Camnitezer, Leonilson, Pedro Alcantara, Miguel Angel Rojas).” Frieze Magazine April 2009 Issue
