Exposiciones / A Tale of Two Worlds: A Dialogue between the MMK Collection and the History of Experimental Latin Art, 1940s–1980s

07 July, 2018 - 14 October, 2018
MAMBA, Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires

A Tale of Two Worlds sets out to establish a dialogue between two narratives in Western contemporary art over the five decades between the forties and the eighties: the European-American canon—as represented in the MMK Collection—and Latin American experimental art. Although emerging from divergent political, economic and historical contexts, the art on show will reveal parallel trajectories, crossover points and different approaches. The exhibition initiates a discussion on the artists’ reactions to their different socio-political contexts. The exhibition contains some 500 artworks, from private and public collections, by 100 artists and collectives from Latin America, the United States and Europe.
