Contesting Modernity: Informalism in Venezuela, 1955–1975
Thursday, December 13, 2018:
Contesting Modernity: Informalism in Venezuela, 1955–1975 charts the trajectory of Venezuelan Informalism from the late 1950s through the 1970s. More than 100 works of art, across a variety of media, showcase the richness and complexity of the movement.
The exhibition brings together for the first time a wide range of proposals encompassing internationally renowned figures such as Carlos Cruz-Diez, Alejandro Otero, and Jesús Rafael Soto, as well as the movement’s under-recognized practitioners, including Alberto Brandt, Daniel Gonzalez, and Francisco Hung.
This 45-minute, docent-led tour explores the exhibition and encourages visitors to discuss the art together.
Drop in! Gallery tours are free with Museum admission. On Thursdays, Museum admission is free, courtesy of Shell.
