Latin American Art from the Museum's Collection
Twentieth-century and contemporary Latin American art is international in nature, and its leading figures have achieved international stature. This sampling of Latin American art from the Museum’s collections introduces the work of several major Latin American artists whose works reflect the interaction of politics, society and art, a dialogue between avant-garde movements and “indigenist” thinking, and the search for cultural -identity.
Twenty works by many of the most important 20thcentury Latin American artists range from the traditional figurative sculpture of Francisco Zúñiga, to the the modernism of Rufino Tamayo and Matta, the contemporary abstraction of Enrique Castro-Cid and Carlos Cruz-Diez, and the poetic realism of Julio Larraz.
This exhibition is organized by the Boca Raton Museum of Art.
