In 2013, the ICAA and the Latin American Art Department published two exhibition catalogues and one much awaited anthology of readings. Beautifully illustrated and with insightful essays, Intersecting Modernities: Latin American Art from the Brillembourg Capriles Collection celebrates the superb collection of Venezuelan collector Tanya Capriles de Brillembourg. Intersecting Modernities is the companion book to the eponymous exhibition held from June 20 to September 2, 2013 at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. On view from November 10, 2013 to January 26, 2014, Antonio Berni: Juanito and Ramona was curated by Mari Carmen Ramírez, Wortham Curator of Latin American Art and ICAA Director, and Marcelo E. Pacheco, Chief Curator at MALBA-Fundación Costantini. The accompanying publication represents the first comprehensive survey of the acclaimed Juanito Laguna and Ramona Montiel series. With more than 250 color images, Antonio Berni brings together nearly two decades of the artist’s experimental works, often made with found, everyday objects, through perceptive analyses of some of the leading scholars of Latin American art. Untangling the Web: Gego's Reticulárea, an Anthology of Critical Response captures the most prominent essays written about Gego’s Reticulárea, a massive netlike sculptural installation first presented at the Museo de Bellas Artes, Caracas, in 1969. With texts in both English and Spanish, Untangling the Web brings together images as well as documentary materials and primary texts written by artists, writers, and Gego.
