Making Art Concrete: Works from Argentina and Brazil
September 23, 2017 @ 8:00 am - February 11, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
Combining art historical and scientific analysis, experts from the Getty Conservation Institute and Getty Research Institute have collaborated with the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros, to examine the formal strategies and material choices of avant-garde painters and sculptors in Argentina and Brazil associated with the concrete art movement. These works of geometric abstraction, created between 1946 and 1962, are presented alongside information on how the artists pioneered new techniques and materials.
This exhibition is part of the initiative Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA.
