Constructing Constructivism

The Juan Carlos Maldonado Art Collection (JCMAC) initiates a new cycle in its exhibition program at its recently opened Miami Design District center with Constructing Constructivism. Curated by M Carlota Perez-Appelbaum, the new selection from JCMAC’s outstanding collection explores the role of geometric abstraction in the mid-twentieth century within an extensive international context.  With works by such diverse artists as Ilya Bolotowsky, Lygia Pape, Jesús Soto, Leon Polk Smith, Gego, Kenneth Noland, Joël Stein, Tadaaki Kuwayama, among many others, the exhibition looks into a wide range of philosophical, painterly and conceptual approaches to the geometric image during a time of increased global awareness. Featuring paintings, sculptures, and drawings from JCMAC’s exceptional survey of artworks, Constructing Constructivism advances the possibilities of global integration by focusing on mutual influences and exchanges among artists and movements across three continents.

In addition to visiting this selection of artwork at its own exhibition space, audiences can also enjoy one of JCMAC’s most distinguished works, Jesús Rafael Soto’s Penetrable BBL Bleu, 1999, currently installed at the Pérez Art Museum Miami.
