The first survey exhibition in the United States of Marta Minujín, a defining force of Latin American art whose trajectory intersected with the major artistic developments of the postwar period while reflecting a singular spirit and vision infused by her sharp intellect, irreverent humor, and performative presence.
Marta Minujín established an international reputation as a key artistic voice at a young age. Born to a Russian-Jewish family in 1943 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Minujín began her career in the late 1950s creating cardboard constructions and roughly hewn paintings. Today she is one of Argentina’s most recognized artists and celebrated cultural personalities.
