Works of Art as Objects
January 24, 2008
To complement the installation New Perspectives in Latin American Art, 1930-2006: Selections from a Decade of Acquisitions, scholars explore the ways in which selected seminal works and artists revolutionized the visual arts in their countries in a given period. Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro, curator of Latin American Art, Jack S. Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin, examines Gyula Kosice's Mobile Articulated Sculpture (1948); Juan Carlos Ledezma, independent curator, focuses on Alejandro Otero's Ortogonales (1951–52); Amy Rosenblum Martín, independent curator, examines Mira Schendel's Droguinha (1967); and Anna Indych-López, Assistant Professor of Art, The City College of New York, The City University of New York, discusses Victor Grippo's Life, Death, Resurrection (1980). Luis Pérez-Oramas, The Estrellita Brodsky Curator of Latin American Art at MoMA and organizer of the exhibition, moderates a discussion.
The symposium is made possible by Kathy and Richard S. Fuld, Jr.
