Assistant curator Christina De León will lead a guided tour of Gego: Origin and Encounter, Mastering the Space.

Americas Society co-presents an exhibition with Sala Mendoza and Fundación Gego, Caracas to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of acclaimed artist Gertrud Goldschmidt. Widely known as Gego, the Venezuelan artist is considered one of the most important Latin American modernists of the twentieth century.

This exhibition features a significant group of works on paper, preparatory drawings, photographs, manuscripts, sketches, and three-dimensional works that attest to the artist’s journey from colorful landscapes and street scenes through to abstraction. As one of the very few venues where the in situ Reticulárea was recreated, Americas Society is proud to examine Gego’s innovative and groundbreaking command of space.
