Room 411 Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Collection 2. Movement and Participation

Room?s details

The second room brings together lines of escape that point to op art and kinetic art and it shows the evolution of creators that followed a more organic line, a line that creates fissures in the cannon established by geometric abstraction, considered by many to be isolated from the "heat" of the complex political and social situation in the southern continent starting in the 1960s. Gego, Jesús Soto and Mira Schendel put an end to the danger of the image of "Cold America" freezing entirely and they open up a new and vibrant future involving spectator participation.
