Henrique Faria Gallery, NY – Drawings from the South of America
The exhibition Drawings from the South of America opened yesterday at Henrique Faria Gallery in New York, surveying a 60-year span of works on paper by renowned South American artists. Exhibited are entries by contemporary Colombian artist Luis Roldán and Venezuelan Alessandro Balteo Yazbeck, works from the 1950’s by Brazilian modernists Hercules Barsotti and Willys de Castro, 1970’s works by Brazilian artist Anna Bella Geiger, Argentine Horacio Zabala and German-born/Venezuela-based Gerd Leufert, among other notable names. Resonating with the Neo-Concretist movement, the exhibition is evident of a social awareness and activism as found in geometrical and minimal compositional approaches. Check out full exhibition here.
