The Fundación Cisneros/Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros (FC/CPPC) announces its first major exhibition in Europe, La invención concreta: Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros at the Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid, from January 23rd through September 16th, 2013.
La invención concreta [Concrete Invention] traces the development of geometric abstraction in Latin America from the 1930s to the 1970s. Jointly curated by the respective directors of the Reina Sofia and the CPPC, Manuel Borja-Villel, and Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro, this exhibition covers a period of optimism for Latin America as its economies grew after World War II, bringing a sense of confidence and an independence from the European influence that had characterized Latin American culture before the war.
