Video: Marta Minujín – Americas Society Cultural Achievement Award

Friday, March 23, 2018

Americas Society is honoring Argentine contemporary artist Marta Minujín for her accomplishments in an artistic career spanning half a century. The Americas Society Cultural Achievement Award recognizes extraordinary creativity and artistic mastery among Latin American cultural figures.

One of the main artworks produced by Minujín was Minucode, a seminal work related to her institutional attachment to the Americas Society, says Visual Arts Director and Chief Curator Gabriela Rangel. "The Americas Society was one of the first institutions that provided resources for her to develop something that was transgressive, avant-garde. An adventure in the future."

In this video, Rangel, MAMBA's Victoria Noorthoorn, and MOMA's Stuart Comer and Inés Katzenstein comment on Minujín's career and the impact of her work and persona beyond the art world.
