An atlas of drawings : transforming chronologies by Luis Pérez Oramas( Book )

29 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Made up fo six constellations of drawings taken from the immensely rich drawing collection of The Museum of Modern Art, the groupings found here, which include works produced from 1866 to the present, do not offer a historical overview of the development of drawing during these years. Instead, the guiding principle is the consistency and continuity of formal solutions regardless of the differences in styles, movements, and individuals throughout this preiod."--Pamphlet [1], p. xiv
Armando Reverón by John Elderfield( Book )

13 editions published in 2007 in 3 languages and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume celebrates the work of the Venezuelan artist Armando Reveron (1889-1954). This very first publication on Reveron in English accompanies an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art in early 2007. John Elderfield gives a newly comprehensive account of the artist's development in the context of modern art, while Luis Perez-Oramas places Reveron in relation to Latin American art. More than 100 works - paintings, drawings, and objects - are illustrated in the catalogue, which includes introductory texts by Nora Lawrence. An autobiographical statement by Reveron and an interview with him, a bibliographical note, and an index conclude the publication."--Jacket
Lygia Clark : the abandonment of art, 1948-1988 by Cornelia H Butler( Book )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Museum of Modern Art presents a major retrospective devoted to the art of Lygia Clark (Brazilian, 1920-1988), the first comprehensive exhibition in North America of her work. Lygia Clark: The Abandonment of Art, 1948-1988 comprises nearly 300 works made between the late 1940s and her death in 1988. Drawn from public and private collections, including MoMA's own, this survey is organized around three key themes: abstraction, Neo-Concretism, and the 'abandonment' of art. Each of these axes anchors a significant concept or a constellation of works that mark a definitive step in Clark's career. While Clark's legacy in Brazil is profound, this exhibition draws international attention to her work. By bringing together all parts of her radical production, the exhibition seeks to reintroduce her into current discourses of abstraction, participation, and a therapeutic art practice."
León Ferrari and Mira Schendel : tangled alphabets by Luis Pérez Oramas( Book )

9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

León Ferrari and Mira Schendel are among the most significant Latin American artists of the 20th century. Active during the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s in the neighbouring countries of Argentina and Brazil, they found inspiration in the written word and in the eloquence of spoken language. Their striking visual production coincided with a period of significant focus on language by philosophers and artists. León Ferrari & Mira Schendel is published to accompany the first comprehensive exhibition of the work of these two artists in the United States, presenting new insights on the artists deconstruction of language through a visual repertoire and examining the connections and collisions between the visual arts, the written form, politics and religion
Joaquín Torres-García : the Arcadian modern by Luis Pérez Oramas( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of Joaquín Torres-García opened up transformative possibilities for modernist art on both sides of the Atlantic. A Uruguyan who lived in South America, North America, and Europe, Torres-García anticipated the cultural breadth of today's art world not only in his life but in his equal concerns with the avant-garde and the primitive, the schematic and the utopian. Published alongside the first major American retrospective of Torres-García work since the 1970s, this book richly illustrates his paintings, drawings, sculptures, and manuscripts offering a full overview of his long and wide-ranging career

Marc Ohrem-Leclef : Olympic favela by Marc Ohrem-Leclef( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In many of Rio de Janeiro's shanty towns, or favelas, the city's housing authority, the Secretaria Municipal de Habitação (SMH), is enforcing policies to evict families and demolish their homes--often with little or no notice, and sometimes with use of force--in advance of construction for the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games. Responding to news reports of these evictions, in late 2012 New York-based Marc Ohrem-Leclef (born 1971) set out to portray the people directly and indirectly affected by these evictions, and the residents organizing their neighbors in resistance to SMH's abuse of power. Photographs of the subjects in their respective environments are complemented by portraits in which they hold an emergency flare, representing their ongoing struggle to avoid the destruction of their homes while using the core symbol of the Olympic Games, also a symbol of liberty and independence.--

Luis Roldán by Luis Fernando Roldán( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of Luis Roldán (b. Cali, 1955), already occupies a prominent place in the current plastic landscape, it is solid and consistent: one-step to another, without abandoning the media he is using, but if beyond all borders. In his drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, installations and video; there are few materials, objects or themes that escape his eye. Roldán "has been consolidating a contemplative, lyrical work and non-representational, which evokes the more vulnerable, precarious and everyday human existence condition", says Carolina Ponce de León, in her essay, that with the appreciations by Luis Pérez Oramas and philanthropist Estrellita Brodsky the Latin American art curator at the Museum of Modern Art, comprise this book

Tarsila do Amaral : inventing modern art in Brazil by Stephanie D'Alessandro( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An exploration of the innovative, quintessentially Brazilian painter who merged modernism with the brilliant energy and culture of her homeland Tarsila do Amaral (1886-1973) was a central figure at the genesis of modern art in her native Brazil, and her influence reverberates throughout 20th- and 21st-century art. Although relatively little-known outside Latin America, her work deserves to be understood and admired by a wide contemporary audience. This publication establishes her rich background in European modernism, which included associations in Paris with artists Fernand Leger and Constantin Brancusi, dealer Ambroise Vollard, and poet Blaise Cendrars. Tarsila (as she is known affectionately in Brazil) synthesized avant-garde aesthetics with Brazilian subjects, creating stylized, exaggerated figures and landscapes inspired by her native country that were powerful emblems of the Brazilian modernist project known as Antropofagia. Featuring a selection of Tarsila's major paintings, this important volume conveys her vital role in the emerging modern-art scene of Brazil, the community of artists and writers (including poets Oswald de Andrade and Mario de Andrade) with whom she explored and developed a Brazilian modernism, and how she was subsequently embraced as a national cultural icon. 00Exhibition: Art Institute of Chicago, USA (08.10.2017-07.01.2018); Museum of Modern Art, New York, USA (11.02-03.06.2018)
