The Unbounded Line

The Unbounded Line, A Selection from the Juan Carlos Maldonado Art Collection explores how artists across different geographical and periodical contexts evaluated the nature of art and its place in the world through the pictorial language of geometric abstraction. Although united in the choice of the line as a point of departure, this exhibition invites us to look beyond the rigid principles of geometry and uncover a rich array of artists’ intentions, contexts and concerns that transcend formalist similarities.

The exhibition features over 50 works of art exclusively sourced from the Juan Carlos Maldonado Art Collection. It includes artists from a number of Latin American countries Venezuela, Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, Cuba, Colombia, and Peru as well as Europe and the United States, and focuses on works of art created between the 1930s and 1970s.

In this first-ever comprehensive exhibition, Juan Carlos Maldonado Art Collection presents the core motivation of its continuous survey: the fascinating boundlessness of creative artistic energy within the geometric genre and its relevance in the modern world.
