Her Majesty Queen Sofía of Spain was at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid on January 22, 2013, to attend the inauguration of the exhibition, La Invención Concreta: Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros.
Per the official website of the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia:
“This exhibition specifically focuses on the development of geometric abstraction in Latin America, covering a time frame that begins in the thirties and concludes in the seventies of the twentieth century.
Although this type of abstract art developed initially in Europe and Russia, some South American artists took it as a language of cosmopolitan and progressive future from the modern cities of Montevideo, Buenos Aires, São Paolo, Rio de Janeiro, and Caracas. Geometric abstraction thus becomes a vehicle of expression for the emergence of a continent that explored the mid-twentieth century political and cultural ideas”
La Invención Concreta: Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros will be open to the public on January 23 and ends on September 16, 2013.
