Pan American Modernism: Avant-Garde Art in Latin America and the United States, June 22, 2013 - October 13, 2013, Lowe Art Museum, Miami

Vía Lowe Arte Museum.

Featuring the work of 50 Latin American artists and 21 artists from the United States, Pan American Modernism: Avant-Garde Art in Latin America and the United States explores, for the first time at the Lowe, the rich visual dialogue that exists between objects produced by artists working in 13 countries in North, South and Central America during the 60 years between 1919 and 1979. Showcasing 75 important works of art, many of which are not currently on view or have not been previously exhibited, this exhibition includes paintings, sculpture, works on paper, photography, and mixed media works that represent the Lowe’s diverse, multi-cultural holdings.

Rather than perpetuating a North American-centric hegemony, which tends to diminish and polarize works of art produced by Latin American artists, the exhibition analyzes how Pan American artistic exchanges, rather than stylistic transmission, construct a fuller understanding of Modernism as an international phenomenon across the Americas. Dialogues among the Cuban avant-garde, Mexican muralism and its legacy and counterpoints, Abstract Expressionism, and modernist photography explore commonalities and disconnects throughout the Americas. These exchanges examine the legacy of geometric abstraction in Constructivism, Minimalism, and Op art and consider the role of Colombian modernism. Artists documented in the exhibition include Eduardo Abela, Wifredo Lam, Man Ray, Amelia Peláez, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Adolph Gottlieb, Jacob Lawrence, Hans Hofmann, Gordon Matta-Clark, and Roberto Matta, among others.

Organized by the Lowe Art Museum and curated by Dr. Nathan Timpano, Assistant Professor, Department of Art and Art History.
