This book depicts a journey through the unique trajectory of Virginia Pérez-Ratton. She had the great merit of bringing together Central American artists who, in spite of being neighbors, were also strangers, isolated within the walls of their own nations. She gave visibility to Central American art, hitherto ignored, marginalized, and marginal in international arenas, and showed great figures of contemporary international art in Central America”. Dominique Ratton Pérez. This book gathers 17 texts, essays and short memoirs by colleagues and academics, about the curatorial and management work done by Virginia Pérez-Ratton, curator, cultural activist, artist and TEOR/éTica’s founder. The book includes, as well, a large amount of images of works related to TEOR/éTica’s history. In order to preserve and show another aspect of her career, the book closes with a selection of her major works of art as well as some texts regarding her work as an artist.
