"By the mid 1950's, abstract art became a dominant trend in Latin American cultural scene. Many artists found in his vocabulary rigorously expression elements, while the representation of lines and geometric structures boxes overflowed and seeped into everyday life through posters and murals. This book lays out a careful and thorough analysis that articulates the emergence in the context of avant-garde magazines like Arthur, Joaquim, and publications invencionistas-with the process of institutionalization and modernization of the imaginary hegemony that regional trying to promote in both countries. The profusion of artistic and institutional exchanges between Argentina and Brazil through trips, exhibitions and innovative Sao Paulo Biennial, and the coincidence of aesthetic cuts linked to abstraction in the work of artists such as Max Bill, Lygia Clark, Waldemar Cordeiro and Thomas Maldonado, favor a regional approach. Studying the trajectories of the abstraction from this perspective can rewrite the artistic history of the period and propose a novel reading about the forms of exchange between Argentina and Brazil." --p. 4 of cover.
