Exhibit: Sur Moderno

Date & Time

11 W 53rd St
New York, NY Manhattan


(Until March 14) This sweeping survey of South American abstract art – Sur moderno: Journeys of Abstraction—The Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Gift – is drawn primarily from the paintings, sculptures, and works on paper donated to the Museum by the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros. This extraordinarily comprehensive collection provides the foundation for a journey through the history of abstract and concrete art from South America at mid-century. The exhibition explores the transformative power of abstraction in Brazil, Venezuela, Argentina, and Uruguay, focusing on both the way that artists reinvented the art object itself and the role of art in the renewal of the social environment.
