Curatorial Gallery Talk: James Oles: Women Artists from Surrealism to Abstraction

Tuesday, February 26 | 4:15 pm
Camilla Chandler and Dorothy Buffum Chandler Gallery | Marjorie and Gerald Bronfman Gallery

Women artists have not only formed an essential part of the history of modern Latin American art, they are a specific focus of the Davis Museum’s collection, particularly in the areas of Surrealism and abstraction. Join James Oles, Senior Lecturer in Art and Curator of the exhibition Art_Latin_America: Against the Survey, for a gallery talk highlighting major works by women artists—including Olga Albizu, Puerto Rico’s finest abstract painter, and the German-Venezuelan Gego, whose work is impossible to pigeonhole—who may be less famous than Frida Kahlo, but whose achievements are no less exciting.
