When, on September 11, 1973, military forces led by General Augusto Pinochet staged a US–backed coup d’état and deposed Salvador Allende, the democratically elected socialist president of Chile, the international community’s response was instantaneous. In France, the Comité France-Amérique Latine mobilized eleven Latin American artists to produce an album of screenprints as both a gesture of solidarity and a vehicle to raise funds to support Chilean students studying in France who had lost their scholarships, as well as those who had been forced to flee Chile and seek refuge in France. The portfolio includes work by such heavyweights as Wifredo Lam, Roberto Matta, Jesús Rafael Soto, and Carlos Cruz-Diez, as well as lesser known artists from across the region.The portfolio also includes an introductory statement by Jean Cassou, a writer, poet, and cultural preservationist who served as the first Director of the Musée National d’Art Moderne in Paris. Cassou decries the coup, strongly criticizing the unfettered capitalism that, he argues, drives the imperialist tendency of the United States to intervene in Latin American democracies. (“All for One and One for All: Portfolios from the Permanent Collection,” co-curated by Andrea Inselmann and Sonja Gandert and presented at the Johnson Museum June 24-August 20, 2017)
