Durban Segnini Gallery
Durban Segnini Gallery Miami inaugurates a spectacular exhibition with 15 of the greatest masters of Latin American geometric abstraction, to celebrate the work it has carried out in the United States for more than two decades.

But this is the case with “Abstraction and Constructivism: Continuity and Breakdown of Latin American Modernity,” curated by the essayist and art critic Dennys Matos. Among the 38 paintings, drawings, sculptures and object will be works never before exhibited obtained especially for this exhibition, together with others that have rarely been seen. A unique opportunity, through a privileged selection of works, to become acquainted and to enjoy Latin American geometric abstraction as the most influential manifestation of 20th century Latin American art.
