José Gurvich: Constructive Imagination

September 30, 2005

Curated by Cecilia de Torres, this exhibition examined how Gurvich’s various influences, including his experiences in Israel, Uruguay, and New York allowed him to develop one of the most sophisticated and original constructivist perspectives within modern art. Gurvich settled in New York in 1971 and died there in 1974 as he was preparing for a major solo exhibition at the Jewish Museum. Like Lasar Segall, Gego, Frans Kracjberg, and Roberto Eizenberg, Gurvich was a Latin American artist from Europe. The catalogue includes essays by Gabriela Rangel, Cecilia de Torres and Mary Schneider Enríquez.
