DESCRIPTION

The exhibition, which was curated by Jesús Fuenmayor and Kaira M. Cabañas, was Roberto Obregón’s (1946–2003) first solo exhibition at an arts institution in the United States. This late Venezuelan artist is a key figure of global conceptualism. The exhibition featured over three hundred works from the artist’s extensive archive that is now part of the Carolina and Fernando Eseverri Collection in Caracas. Included were multiple drawings, paintings, sketches, collages, photographs, manipulated photocopies, and other objects.
