One of the most significant artists in the history of modernist abstraction, the Venezuelan Alejandro Otero (1921–1990) developed a lucid and coherent investigation in his art that allowed him to gradually work through artistic problems, exhausting their possibilities, and driving them to their ultimate formal consequences. Between 1955 and 1960, he developed the extraordinary series of seventy-five Colorhythms, one of his major contributions to the field of painting. Curated by Rina Carvajal, Resonant Space: The Colorhythms of Alejandro Otero represents the first exhibition in Brazil to focus on these remarkable works; it allows us to evaluate the place of the Colorhythms within Otero’s art and within the context of international geometric abstraction.
