La Chola Poblete, born in Mendoza, Argentina, in 1989, has been named Deutsche Bank’s “Artist of the Year” for 2023. The Argentinian critically examines the consequences of colonialism and white supremacy in her home country.
In watercolors, sculptures, installations, and performances, she reflects on her indigenous and queer roots and opposes the stereotyping and exoticization of indigenous peoples.
With Guaymallén, the PalaisPopulaire is showing La Chola Poblete’s first solo exhibition in Germany. As part of Berlin Art Week, the artist will present a new performance together with Lola Bhajan.
