YPA: Private Tour of MoMA's Tarsila do Amaral Exhibit

Americas Society / Council of the Americas

March 16, 2018


This event is only open to YPA members. YPA Steering Committee and Silver level members receive priority access to this event.


In collaboration with Visual Arts at Americas Society, Young Professionals of the Americas (YPA) is organizing a private tour of the exhibition Tarsila do Amaral: Inventing Modern Art in Brazil at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).

Tarsila do Amaral set out to be “the painter of her country,” devouring and transforming the culture and values that dominated modern art in the 1920s to create a uniquely Brazilian view of modern art. Though she is widely celebrated in her native country, this is the first exhibition in the United States devoted exclusively to do Amaral's groundbreaking art and features more than a hundred of her works. Read more about the exhibit here.

The tour will be led by Karen Grimson, curatorial assistant of the Department of Drawings and Prints, and will last approximately one hour.

YPA is an international network that provides a platform for young professionals in their 20s and 30s to connect around the latest trends in the Americas through its New York, Miami and Washington, DC chapters.
