Visiones: 20th Century Selections from the Nassau County Museum of Art

Sept 17 - Dec 7, 2008
Boca Raton Museum of Art

Visiones explores the depth and richness of the themes and issues found in contemporary Latin art. The exhibition of thirty six works by mid-20th century masters and influential contemporary artists presents a broad spectrum of investigating how Latin American and Caribbean artists respond to personal, economic, social, and political issues of the human condition. With increasing globalization, mobility, exile, and migration in the Americas, Latin American art today is not defined by cultural, geographical, or national boundaries. The exhibition of painting, sculpture, photography, and installation works, will explore how art and artists preserve their identities within a global landscape. This exhibition was organized by the Boca Raton Museum of Art from the collections of the Nassau County Museum of Art, Roslyn Harbor, New York. The educational programming for Visiones was made possible by the generosity of the MetLife Foundation.
