Vibración. Modern Art from Latin America The Ella Fontanals-Cisneros Collection
Kunst- und Ausstellungshalle der Bundesrepublik Deutschland
Date:
17 September - 30 January 2011
Venue:
Museumsmeile Bonn Friedrich-Ebert-Allee 4 D-53113 Bonn, Germany

A selection of more than two hundred works, spanning painting, sculpture, photography and drawing, presents key positions of Latin American geometric abstraction. At the centre of the exhibition is the Ella Fontanals-Cisneros Collection in its first appearance in Germany.

Intensely urban, Latin American geometric abstraction evolved in a fruitful dialogue with international art movements, ranging from Concrete Art of the 1930s and 40s to Op Art and kinetic art of the 1960s and 70s.

The thematically traces the key trends of geometric abstraction and presents the most vibrant centres of the style in Latin America – most of them in Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay and Venezuela. Surprising visual links between artists of different generations and between different disciplines and styles provide new insights into one of the little-known and underappreciated chapters of international Modernism written by artists such as Joaquín Torres-García, Lygia Clark, Lucio Fontana, Julio Le Parc, Hélio Oiticica, Hércules Barsotti, Carmen Herrera, Alejandro Otero, Carlos Cruz-Diez and Jesús Rafael Soto.
