We were confused by this show until we figured out that "Taller" isn’t the name of a person whose parents were hoping for the top height percentiles, but is actually the spanish word for "workshop" or "studio." Joaquin Torres-Garcia, who’s also got shows at the Menil and MFAH, founded the Taller in Montevideo, Uruguay, in 1943. Awesome South American Modernism!
