Sies + Höke is delighted to present ‘First Day of Good Weather', a group show organized by the independent art space Despacio (Costa Rica).

Despacio is widely considered one of the few independent Latin American voices that has had such a continuous influence over the art world in the last decade. Its vision and contribution to the development of Central America’s artistic voice is truly unique.

Sies + Höke gave Despacio`s curator Sandino Scheidegger and founder Federico Herrero a Carte blanche to present an extensive exhibition of Latin American artists they encountered along their way or were inspired by in their own creative practice.
