Reimagining Geometric Abstraction in Latin American Art
Saturday, February 1, 2014, 11:30 a.m.
The Emily and Jerry Spiegel Painting and Sculpture Gallery, Gallery 26, fourth floor
Learn about geometric abstraction by taking a look at sculpture, which had traditionally been static and fixed, by Latin American artists, such as Gego, Lygia Clark, Jesus Rafael Soto, and Jorge Eielson. See how they explored the limits of kinetic sculpture through materials, installations, dimensionality, optics, and other radical modifications.
Gallery Sessions, impromptu interactions facilitated by Museum educators that explore the creative process, art history, and the experience of art, take place daily in select galleries. Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free with Museum admission. No registration is required.
Sign language–interpreted Gallery Sessions are held every fourth Sunday of the month at 1:30 p.m. FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
