Synopsis

Pablo Curatella-Manes presents an exhibition dedicated to sculpture, painting, and urban, as well as architectural projects by Martín Blaszko, Juan Kurchan, Juan Melé, and Simón Ungar, pointing out the relationship among the three media. The critic also states that housing should not only be functional, but also designed taking into account harmonic forms and chromatic relationships. He proposes that sculptors, painters, and architects work in unison, by means of one single criterion: to look to nature as a source of forms and solutions.

Annotations

Pablo Curatella-Manes (1891-1962) was an Argentinean sculptor born in La Plata, Province of Buenos Aires. He officially served the Argentinean Foreign Office in Paris, promoting numerous exhibitions, among them, as deputy commissioner for the Argentinean Pavillion in the 1958 Brussels World Fair. He also organized in Paris the Pablo Manes y treinta argentinos de la nueva generación [Pablo Manes and thirty Argentineans of the New Generation] exhibited at Galerie Creuze, in 1962.

This document allows us to study Curatella-Manes support for abstraction and his vision regarding the link between multi-disciplinary areas.
