The Great Swindle: Works by Santiago Montoya
Exhibition on view through March 26

Colombian artist Santiago Montoya uses paper currency as the base for his work, re-contextualizing one of our most basic and intimate relationships: the relationship with money. Comprised of works that Montoya has made over the last ten years, The Great Swindle exhibition at the OAS AMA | Art Museum of the Americas represents a sustained examination of the complicated, fluid relationships we have with financial systems. The Great Swindle is a journey through the artist’s forays into the materiality of paper bills – raising questions and taking positions on our places within financial systems. Join us for a lively discussion with our panel of specialists.
