The Institute for Studies on Latin American Art (ISLAA) announces the opening of "José Antonio Fernández-Muro: Geometry in Transfer", curated by Megan Kincaid. The second in a series on Latin American modernism at ISLAA, this exhibition is the first to comprehensively explore the Spanish Argentine artist’s luminous transfer paintings, which he developed in Buenos Aires in the 1950s and later elaborated on while living in New York City in the 1960s.
Rather than isolate what the artist termed his two “fundamental epochs” in Buenos Aires and New York, this exhibition emphasizes their critical continuities—visual, material, and ideological—to reveal Fernández-Muro’s displacement and transformation of Argentine abstraction. Its title, Geometry in Transfer, refers at once to his expansion of geometric abstraction and his translation of Argentine modernist painting amid the artistic preoccupations of the New York avant-garde.
"José Antonio Fernández-Muro: Geometry in Transfer" is accompanied by a publication including an essay by curator Megan...Kincaid. Coinciding with the exhibition, the sixth issue of ISLAA’s serial publication Vistas: Critical Approaches to Modern and Contemporary Latin American Art is devoted to Fernández-Muro and fellow artist Sarah Grilo, his spouse. This issue was made possible thanks to the Estate of Sarah Grilo and José Antonio Fernández-Muro, which generously loaned their archive to ISLAA. Physical copies of both publications are available free of charge at ISLAA and for download on their website.
