The Amon Carter Museum unveils Constructive Spirit: Abstract Art in South and North America, 1920s–50s. This groundbreaking exhibition is the first to bring together South American and U.S. geometric abstraction. Organized by the Newark Museum, the show features 85 works by over 65 abstract artists from Argentina, Brazil, the US, Uruguay and Venezuela, working in a variety of media. Constructive Spirit provides a fresh look at modernism and highlights works by Joaquín Torres-García, Arshile Gorky, Gyula Kosice and Jesús Rafael Soto, to name a few. In conjunction with the exhibition, four short, avant-garde films by Mary Ellen Bute and Dwinell Grant are shown in the museum’s auditorium every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 1-3 pm (except July 4 & 10 + August 8).
