Works by American artists will fill the Iberoamerican Art Fair

Posted by Dubraswka Aguilar on September 24, 2014

Under the surround and ambitious title of Contemporary American Graphic XXIII Iberoamerican Art Fair, FIA 2014, will present the key contemporary trends in that country through its leading figures, such as: Pop Art, Abstract Expressionism, Minimalist abstraction, Conceptualisms, Figuration free, Photo-Realism and Hyperrealism.

There are 21 artists with 30 works collections from USA and Venezuela, who are curated by María Luz Cárdenas and supported by Arvelaez Greys, they will be displayed in the lobby of the exhibition space in the Tamanaco Hotel and have the endorsement of the APA (American Prints Association). While many of their names are familiar to artists and scholars who attend the exhibition spaces in the country, and which are identified in the search field and inventions of proposals, there is a local public hungry for information and exchange that for the first time will see a great artistic event and historical scope.

The names and works of Alexander Calder (Integration Project for the Arts in University City), Robert Motherwell (historical exhibition in the MBA 1948), Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, Larry Rivers and Keith Haring are known to us from the 40s of the last century; list that overcrowding, communications and use of technological resources of our time added to Nam June Paik, Christo, Chuck Close, Richard Estes and Donald Baechler as legitimate representatives of the trends to be displayed.

References conceptual of the art are from the early 60s of last century, late ruptures and schisms in American culture, but somehow constituted fertile harvest of many European artists that emigrated to America after the war and planted their knowledge and ideas in a vigorous crop of creators. Previously Marcel Duchamp and his provocative thesis on the art of creating genetic changes that would find its fullest expression in America.

Thereafter-points Maria Luz Cardenas- history proves how different American movements led the evolution of the arts in the second half of the twentieth century with a keen ability to experiment with tools and techniques, research and possibilities for new content expanding conceptual contexts and margins of creation. The graphic arts occupy an important place in the process of experimentation, were one of the means of expression with greater communication skills and discursive scope and arise as a central element of this exhibition which concentrates movements and artists who drew the graphic arts as sources essential of creation.

The sample of Contemporary American Graphic open its doors to the public from September 25th to 29th from 2:00 pm to 9:00 pm (Friday and Monday); and from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. (Saturday and Sunday).
