A solo exhibition of painting by Virginia Jaramillo.
From the Menil:
“Virginia Jaramillo: The Curvilinear Paintings, 1969-1974, is the artist’s first solo museum exhibition. This focused exhibition presents eight abstract paintings by Virginia Jaramillo (b. 1939, El Paso), in which thin, undulating lines dance across monochrome fields of bright, flat color.
The Menil’s exhibition marks the fiftieth anniversary of The De Luxe Show, one of the first racially integrated exhibitions of contemporary art held in the United States, organized by the Menil Foundation and curated by New York artist Peter Bradley in 1971. Jaramillo, the only woman and Latina included, exhibited the painting Green Dawn, 1970, which will be on view for this special presentation
Organized by Michelle White, Senior Curator, The Menil Collection.
The exhibition is presented in association with the Feminist Art Coalition (FAC).

Additional support comes from; Laura and Walter Elcock; Marley Lott; Poppi Massey; Suzanne Deal Booth; Clare Casademont and Michael Metz; Janet and Paul Hobby; Linda and George Kelly; and the City of Houston through Houston Arts Alliance.”
