La Chola Poblete, recipient of Deutsche Bank’s “Artist of the Year” 2023 award, will show her first solo exhibition in Europe as part of the award. The exhibition will take place at PalaisPopulaire.
In her work, the artist creates independent hybrid forms and an artistic beauty that defies cultural and racial stereotypes. Her works often move between drawing and painting. Her delicate, masterfully composed watercolors combine the symbolism and mythology of South American peoples with her own reflections on sexuality, religion, politics, ecology, and history. Poblete is part of the queer artist collective Comparsa Drag. With the help of her alter ego La Chola, she constructs a hybrid cultural and sexual identity in performative actions.
