William Cordova Now’s the Time: Narratives of Southern Alchemy

"William Cordova Now’s the Time: Narratives of Southern Alchemy" is the first extensive museum survey of cultural practitioner william cordova (b. 1969, Lima; lives in Miami, Lima, and New York). It presents a selection of works embodying the three main themes that have inspired the work of this celebrated Miami artist for decades: transmission, alchemy, and transcendence. In his nationally and internationally recognized drawings, sculptures, installations, and collaborative projects, cordova collapses linear concepts of time and history to address contemporary notions of displacement. He extensively researches symbols and artifacts from different cultures and times, ignoring the boundaries between the past and the present. Then, he uses ephemeral and precarious materials to create elegant works that challenge traditional Western typologies. Striving to create a flexible and critical space for the understanding of our contemporary moment, he builds bridges between “apparently” separate narratives, such as contemporary hip-hop culture, African artifacts, and the pre-Columbian history of the Incas. This exhibition will be accompanied by the artist’s first museum catalogue.
