Pulses of Abstraction in Latin America
Geometric abstraction found its most dynamic, sensual and enduring expression in Latin America. Between 1930 and 1970, concrete, neoconcrete art and other varieties of abstraction thrived on this continent as nowhere else, and nowhere is this rich vein better documented than in the famous Cisneros Collection.
This volume draws on the collection to showcase works from Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Mexico, Cuba, Venezuela and Colombia, all of which are contextualized with historical and artistic documents and essays. Among the many artists gathered in this definitive overview are Carmelo Arden-Quin, Wilys de Castro, Lygia Clark, Waldemar Cordeiro, Carlos Cruz-Díez, Gego, Mathias Göeritz, Carmen Herrera, Anna María Maiolino, Tomás Maldonado, José Mijares, Hélio Oiticica, Alejandro Otero, Lygia Pape, Mira Schendel, Loló Soldevilla, Rafael Soriano, Jesús Rafael Soto and Joaquín Torres-García.
