The exhibition Southern Geometries, from Mexico to Patagonia celebrates the wealth of color and diversity of styles in the geometric art of Latin America, bringing together 250 artworks made by over 70 artists from the Pre-Columbian period to present. Including modernist abstract art, sculpture and architecture as well as ceramics, weaving, and body painting, the exhibition explores the wide range of approaches to geometric abstraction in Latin America, whether influenced by Pre-Columbian art, the European avant-garde or Amerindian cultures. Southern Geometries weaves visual relationships among diverse cultures and regions across time, inviting visitors to discover the vibrant patterns and designs of Latin American art.
The exhibition Picasso, Braque, Gris, Blanchard, Miró y Dalí. Grandes Figuras de la Vanguardia will showcase eight works from the Colección Masaveu and the Colección Pedro Masaveu. All these works were collected by the Masaveu family, a Catalan dynasty of entrepreneurs and philanthropists who settled in Asturias in 1840. The exhibition is the result of a collaboration between the Museo de Bellas Artes de Asturias, the Fundación María Cristina Masaveu Peterson and the Corporación Masaveu. It has been curated by Alfonso Palacio, the director of the Museo de Bellas Artes de Asturias. A 17-page leaflet guide to the exhibition can be downloaded by clicking here.
