Alejandro Otero: Coloritmos

Instituto de Arte Contemporânea in Sao Paulo, in collaboration with the Nemirovsky Foundation and the Pinacoteca do Estado, presented Alejandro Otero’s Coloritmos from September 2012 to January 2013. The show, curated by Rina Carvajal, presented for the first time outside of Venezuela more than 40 works from the Coloritmos series, one of the artist’s main contributions to geometric abstraction. Art&Art contributed with the exhibition lending the last piece from the series, Coloritmo #75, 1960. Painter and sculptor, Alejandro Otero is one of the most prestigious names in the history of abstraction. In his practice, Otero developed a coherent and lucid survey that allowed him to gradually solve artistic matters, exhausting their potential and leading them to their ultimate compositional consequences.
