Sur moderno: recorridos de la abstracción (2019) [Spanish]

2 January 2020, dusan

Sur moderno: Journeys of Abstraction explores the abstract and Concrete art movements that flourished in South America from the mid-1940s to the late 1970s. Published in conjunction with a major exhibition, this richly illustrated volume features work by artists from across the region, including Lidy Prati, Tomás Maldonado, Rhod Rothfuss, Lygia Clark, Hélio Oiticica, Jesús Rafael Soto, and Alejandro Otero. Sur moderno highlights a selection of works gifted to MoMA by Patricia Phelps de Cisneros between 1997 and 2016—a donation that has transformed the Museum’s holdings of Latin American art, enabling a more comprehensive representation of the region’s integral role in the development of modern art.”

With contributions by Glenn D. Lowry, Irene V. Small, María Amalia García, Monica Amor and Inés Katzenstein.

Edited by Inés Katzenstein and María Amalia García with Karen Grimson and Michaëla de Lazace
