Room 410 Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Collection 1. Concrete Invention

Room?s details

The first of the rooms is dedicated to the geometric component: concrete and neoconcrete art. In contrast with the lyrical or dramatic language of Abstract Expressionism, so individual and unrepeatable, the neoconcretism of Willys de Castro, Hélio Oiticica and Lygia Clark asserted itself as a speculative shift that was both collective and utopian. Although seemingly hermetic, their pieces show internal rhythms and centrifugal movements; tools that show an interest in play and that search silently for the spectator, and at the same time reveal how math applied to art is not just a synonym of coldness.
