Crossroads and crosswords are meeting places: they allow folks and words to blend and generate new values by means of their encounters. In the old game of crosswords, word merging creates possibilities and connotations that enrich and transform language through unlikely associations.
In a similar manner, images and words have historically compounded in the work of artists and writers alike.
The exhibition Crosswords covers different periods of artistic production, from historical figures León Ferrari and Augusto de Campos to artists of the latest generation in Africa, Latin America and Europe.
