Desenhar no Espaço. Artistas Abstratos do Brasil e da Venezuela na Coleção Patricia Phelps de Cisneros is a comparative study of the work of two of the most important abstract traditions in Latin America, the Concrete and Neo-concrete movements in Brazil and the Venezuelan geometric abstraction and kinetic art movements during the 1950s and early 1960s.

The exhibition, curated by Ariel Jiménez, examines how artists in both movements addressed the need to transcend the traditional limits of painting, shifting from a two-dimensional plane into three-dimensional space to achieve a more effective dialogue with the viewer. The exhibition includes some of the most representative artists in these movements: Gego, Alejandro Otero, Jesús Soto and Carlos Cruz-Diez from Venezuela, and Lygia Clark, Hélio Oiticia, Willys de Castro and Mira Schendel from Brazil.

This exhibition will also be presented at the end of november at the Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo, Brazil
