Members Tour “Contesting Modernity: Informalism in Venezuela, 1955–1975”
Contesting Modernity: Informalism in Venezuela, 1955–1975 charts the trajectory of Venezuelan Informalism from the late 1950s through its last manifestations in 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.
MFAH members are invited to reserve a spot for this one-hour tour to explore the exhibition together with a Museum docent.
