ALBANY.- The Museum of Modern Art has been collecting art from Latin America and the Caribbean since the early 1930s, and it has become the leading institution collecting such art in the world. Through its Latin American and Caribbean Fund and numerous exhibitions and educational programs, the Museum continues today to foster interest in promoting and studying Latin American and Caribbean art and culture. A selection of over 50 works from MoMA’s unparalleled collection of Latin American and Caribbean art, including paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs, and prints, traces significant stylistic trends and movements found in works from this region from early modern to contemporary. This exhibition gathers significant works from artists as varied as Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Sérgio Camargo, Lygia Clark, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Willys de Castro, León Ferrari, Gego, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Arturo Herrera, Carmen Herrera, Hector Hyppolyte, Wifredo Lam, Los Carpinteros, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Anna Maria Maiolino, Marisol, Matta, Cildo Meireles, Philomé Obin, Hélio Oiticica, Alejandro Otero, Lygia Pape, Amelia Peláez Del Casal, Emilio Pettoruti, Armando Reverón, Diego Rivera, Rufino Tamayo and Joaquín Torres-García. Together the works in this exhibition deliver a lesson not only about Latin American art, but about modern art in general: that Modernity was never completely unified; rather, it existed as various constellations of artists, singular individuals, and complex collective experiences.
