Nexus New York: Latin/American Artists in the Modern Metropolis
|Curated by Deborah Cullen, Director of Curatorial Programs, El Museo del Barrio.|
This landmark exhibition examines pioneering Caribbean and Latin American artists who lived in New York City before World War II and shaped the American avant-garde.
Between 1900 and 1942, New York City was the site of extraordinary creative exchange where artists could share ideas in a global context. The swiftly-changing urban landscape before and between the World Wars inspired the erosion of artistic boundaries and fostered a new climate of modernist experimentation. Nexus New York focuses on key artists from the Caribbe an and Latin America who entered into dynamic cultural and social dialogues with the American-based avant-garde and participated in the development of a new modern discourse.New York Times Review»
