Americas Society co-presents an exhibition with Sala Mendoza and Fundación Gego, Caracas to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of acclaimed artist Gertrud Goldschmidt. Widely known as Gego, the Venezuelan artist is considered one of the most important Latin American modernists of the twentieth century.
This exhibition features a significant group of works on paper, preparatory drawings, photographs, manuscripts, sketches, and three-dimensional works that attest to the artist’s journey from colorful landscapes and street scenes through to abstraction. As one of the very few venues where the in situ Reticulárea was recreated, Americas Society is proud to examine Gego’s innovative and groundbreaking command of space.
* El Atlas de Borges > Del 4 al 20 de Octubre > Instituto Cervantes >> BORGES.
Atlas, de Borges es una exposición que nos invita al mundo personal del escritor a través de una selección de fotografías que el autor de El Aleph y su esposa Maria Kodama hicieron durante sus viajes. Las percepciones que experimentaron están reflejadas en esas instantáneas, las cuáles no tienen un excelente valor a nivel técnico, pero conservan el poder de lo genuino, el asombro y la frescura de sus experiencias alrededor del mundo. Una aproximación completamente distinta a Jorge Luis Borges, que nos permite descubrir al hombre que era en su tiempo de ocio, más allá de su faceta de escritor, un hombre reflexivo, solemne, y buen compañero de viaje. Con la presencia de María Kodama y el IngenieroHernán Lombardi, Ministro de Cultura de Buenos Aires.

|Alexis Duque, City of Gold, acrylic on canvas, 61 x 91.5 cm, 0,|
In his new series of paintings, Alexis Duque presents us with an idealized city. Baroque in spirit, the works abound with a plethora of distinctive buildings that are a blend of fantasy and reality. Among these, we see an inventory of iconic New York City buildings such as the Empire State, Chrysler, Flatiron, Woolworth, Condé Nast, Philip Johnson’s AT&T building (now SONY), Frank Gehry’s IAC building, and the Guggenheim. Each of these is rendered as a blend of realistic details with the artist’s own inventions. Throughout the works, the artist is principally concerned with two themes, the skyscraper viewed among the clouds and scenes of the well-known skyline at night.

Drawing inspiration from the natural landscape of the Botanical Garden, seven towering sculptures by acclaimed Spanish artist Manolo Valdés showcase the relationship between art and nature. The sculptures have been sited to take maximum advantage of the Garden's dramatic views with special attention given to the visual impact of the changing seasons. The artist has designed the installation to include surprising changes in the visual character of the sculptures throughout the seasons.
Gabriel Orozco’s Asterisms, the final project of the commissioning program at Deutsche Guggenheim, Berlin, is a two-part sculptural and photographic installation comprising thousands of items of detritus the artist has gathered at two sites—a playing field near his home in New York and a protected coastal biosphere in Baja California Sur, Mexico, that is also the repository for flows of industrial and commercial waste from across the Pacific Ocean.
