December 2017, Miami- We are thrilled to announce that JCMAC opened its doors to hundreds of visitors during the opening weeks of Constructing Constructivism. After months of research, designing an inspiring concept, and selecting the perfect pieces exclusively sourced from JCMAC’s collection, we were pleased and humbled to receive such astounding public reception.
Curated by JCMAC curator Carlota Perez-Applebaum, Constructing Constructivism explores the role of geometric abstraction in the mid-twentieth century in an extensive international context. The exhibition looks into a wide range of philosophical, painterly and conceptual approaches to the geometric image during a time of increased global awareness and advances the possibilities of global integration by focusing on mutual influences and exchanges among artists and movements across three continents. The selection includes 38 pieces from 33 artists, by such diverse artists as Ilya Bolotowsky, Lygia Pape, Jesús Soto, Leon Polk Smith, Gego, Kenneth Noland, Joël Stein, Tadaaki Kuwayama, among many others.
