FIFTY YEARS OF LATIN AMERICAN
ART: SELECTIONS FROM THE
NEUBERGER MUSEUM OF ART
FEBRUARY 28–MAY 30, 2012
ON VIEW AT THE 1285 AVENUE OF THE AMERICAS GALLERY, NEW YORK
MONDAY–FRIDAY, 8 AM–6 PM
Fifty Years of Latin American Art, on view at 1285 Avenue of the Americas Gallery, New York, features nearly sixty works in various media from the Museum's permanent collection of Latin American art, dating from the 1960s to the present.
Over the last fifty years, many Latin American artists began to move away from traditional modes of art production, exploring forms such as kinetic, optical, and conceptual art. These investigations reflect an interest in pure color and form, as well as self-expression including notions of identity, desire, internal struggle, and liberty.
The selection includes works by major modern and contemporary Latin American artists, including:
Manuel Álvarez Bravo
Marta María Pérez Bravo
José Clemente Orozco
Carlos Cruz Diez
José Luis Cuevas
Nicolás de Jesús
Jesús Rafael Soto
Fifty Years of Latin American Art: Selections from the Neuberger Museum of Art was organized by the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase College, SUNY, and was curated for 1285 Avenue of the Americas Gallery by Patrice Giasson, Associate Curator of Art of the Americas, and Annabel Rhodeen, a candidate in the Masters Program in Modern and Contemporary Art History, Criticism, and Theory and a Neuberger Curatorial Fellow.
The exhibition is sponsored by 1285 Avenue of the Americas Gallery, New York.
