The Legacy of Abstraction in the Southern Cone and Beyond
Showcasing fifteen works spanning from the 1930s to the present day, our booth traces the genealogy of Latin American Abstraction on both sides of the River Plate and beyond.
Committed to the employment of geometry and, most importantly, to using abstraction as a formal visual language, we feature the significant contributions made by fifteen boundary-pushing artists including Joaquín Torres-García, Esteban Lisa, Ides Kihlen, Roberto Aizenberg, Freddy Rodríguez, Alejandro Corujeira, Beto de Volder, and Mariano Ferrante—all from throughout the Americas.
These works provide a broad historical view, revealing the complexities and variety of expressions that have characterized the art of Latin America throughout the century. Exhibiting works produced in the Southern Cone nations of South America up through the Caribbean, we offer a unique vision of the artists’ exploration and devotion to the fundamentals of painting, celebrating the evocative quality in the context of Latin America’s modernization.
