Fifty Years Of Latin American Art at Kean University

Fifty Years Of Latin American Art: Selections From The Neuberger Museum Of Art

February 24 to June 26, 2014

 

Fifty Years of Latin American Art: Selections from the Neuberger Museum of Art will be on exhibition at Kean's Karl and Helen Burger Gallery, located in the Maxine and Jack Lane Center for Academic Success (CAS) building, from February 24 to June 26, 2014.

An opening reception featuring the curators of the exhibition will be held on Thursday, February 27, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., in the gallery.

The exhibition includes more than 30 works from the Neuberger’s permanent collection by some of the most renowned modern and contemporary artists of Latin America. Their works engage a variety of themes including social criticism, self-expression, identity, and liberty. While some of the artists follow the current of conceptual art, others, interested in color, form, and motion, explore optical and kinetic art, seeking new interactions between viewer and object.

Fifty Years Of Latin American Art: Selections From The Neuberger Museum Of Art offers a panoramic view of the last 50 years of Latin American art, expressed through a variety of media, including paintings, prints, photographs and sculpture. The exhibition is organized by artist and theme rather than chronology or geography. Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Julio Antonio, Leda Catunda, Carlos Cruz-Diez, José Luis Cuevas, Nicolás De Jesús, Arturo Duclos, Carlos Garaicoa, Florencio Gelabert, Wifredo Lam, Eduardo Mac Entyre, María Martínez-Cañas, Roberto Matta, José Clemente Orozco, Betsabeé Romero, Jesús Rafael Soto, and Rufino Tamayo are included in this exhibition.

The exhibit is organized by the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase College, State University of New York, and curated by Patrice Giasson, the Alex Gordon Associate Curator of Art of the Americas, and Annabel Rhodeen, a graduate of the M.A. program in Modern and Contemporary Art Criticism, History, and Theory, Purchase College, SUNY.
