DESCRIPTION

The exhibition Embracing Modernity: Venezuelan Geometric Abstraction, presents a historical overview of the origins of the country’s abstract movement, focusing on its early development dating from the late 1940’s to the 1970’s. It includes works by artists who are responsible for the development of the movement at the national and international level, particularly in Paris where many of them resided at the time.

The show curated by Francine Birbragher-Rozencwaig and Maria Carlota Perez will feature works by Carlos Cruz-Diez, Gertrude Goldschmidt (GEGO), Mateo Manaure, Alejandro Otero, Jesús Rafael Soto among many others.

The exhibition is made possible by support from Art&Art LLC.;  LGT of America, Inc. and Funding Arts Network.
