This August the ICAA celebrates the 55th anniversary of L'Art latino-américain à Paris, 1962, a historical exhibition showcasing the works of nearly one hundred and fifty Latin American artists who resided in Paris at the time. Organized by French art critic and curator Jean-Clarence Lambert at the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville, Paris, the exhibition featured artists whose residence in the French capital during the 1960s was due to varied reasons (from artistic training to political unrest in their native countries). Many of the artists who participated in this exhibition are now part of the MFAH permanent collection, including the Argentineans Antonio Berni, Jorge De la Vega; Léon Ferrari, Gyula Kosice, Julio Le Parc, Luis-Felipe Noe, and Luis Tomasello; the Venezuelans Carlos Cruz-Diez, Alejandro Otero, Jesus Rafael Soto; the Brazilians Sergio De Camargo and Cicero Dias; the Chilean Roberto Matta; and the Mexican Rufino Tamayo. Our readers can learn more about the art critical reception of this exhibition at the ICAA digital archive.
