Out of Line Pop Up Show

May 16, 2014

The Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros (CPPC) is proud to partner with MINUS SPACE for this brief presentation of a selection of nearly thirty historical works – including painting, drawing, works on paper, and sculpture – by thirteen artists, primarily South American, who spent the greater part of their lives investigating the language of reductive abstraction during one of its most fertile periods, from the late 1940s through the early 1980s.

Mark your calendars for "Out of Line," our first pop-up show ever, guest curated by Minus Space!

The CPPC is a ‘museum without walls’, a collection dedicated to generating thought and knowledge about the material culture and heritage of Latin America. As such, the collection travels extensively around the world, and also sponsors an active publication and research program.

Minus Space, as a network of artists and fans of geometric abstraction, is a perfect partner for this first ever ‘pop-up’ show in New York.

And thank you Mathew Deleget and Rossana Martínez for co-curating such an amazing show!

Out of Line featured nearly thirty historical works taking Colombian artist Feliza Bursztyn’s raucous, stainless steel sculpture Sin título (de la serie Histéricas) (1967) as the point of departure. Brought together into the context of a single exhibition space, these works formed a vigorous and shifting social dynamic akin to a live stage performance, energetic children’s playground, or bustling subway platform.
