Conversaciones con Jesús Soto
This book presents a series of interviews between the Venezuelan artist Jesús Soto (1923–2005), and art historian Ariel Jiménez. Conducted over nine years, from 1995–2004, the interviews have been woven together and edited to form a conversation that provides unique insight into Soto’s fascinating career. Distinguished for his involvement in the development of kinetic art in Paris in the 1950s and 60s, and his subsequent work in the geometric abstract movements in Venezuela, Jesús Soto is recognized today as one of the most important Latin American artists of the century. The text is illustrated with key works by the artist.
