Event Description

The Getty Center presents “Making Art Concrete: Works from Argentina and Brazil in the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros”

In the tumultuous years after World War II, avant-garde artists in Buenos Aires, São Paulo, and Rio de Janeiro responded to the changing world order both ideologically and aesthetically. They rejected figurative and expressive styles in favor of Concrete art, an approach characterized by abstract compositions of geometric shapes and patterns. Making Art Concrete marks the first time these works have been comprehensively studied for both their art-historical and technical innovations. Thirty works from a world-renowned collection of Latin American art are displayed alongside key technical findings, didactic videos, and historical documents.

This exhibition is part of the initiative Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA.
