Making Art Concrete: Works from Argentina and Brazil in the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros
Combining art historical and scientific analysis, experts from the GCI and GRI 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.
