The Geometry of Hope. Latin American Abstract Art from the Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Collection
Blanton Museum of Art
Date:
20 February - 22 April 2007
Venue:
The University of Texas at Austin MLK at Congress, 200 East MLK Austin, USA

Drawn from one of the world's leading collections of Latin American art, this exhibition examines the dynamic visual vocabulary of Geometric Abstraction that developed in the cosmopolitan art capitals of Buenos Aires, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, and other South American cities from the 1930s through the 1970s.

Featuring more than 125 works by 52 artists, among them Lygia Clark, Gego, Jesús Rafael Soto, Carlos Cruz-Diez and Hélio Oiticica, The Geometry of Hope examines the complex history and rich creative ferment of one of the most fascinating artistic movements of the last century. A version of the exhibition will be on view at New York University's Grey Art Gallery in the fall of 2007.
