In September 2016, the Whitney Museum of American Art opened its doors to the first museum exhibition to feature the perennially overlooked Cuban artist Carmen Herrera in almost 20 years. The scope of the exhibition focuses on the development of the artist’s style from 1948-1978. It was throughout this period Herrera evolved her signature style and explored the then unknown territory of Abstract Art, which was still in its nascent form.
Carmen Herrera:Lines of Sight comprises of fifty works that range from paintings, three-dimensional pieces, and works on paper, including a painting from JCMAC. The Juan Carlos Maldonado Art Collection is excited to contribute to an exhibition whose objective aligns so closely with our own: the appreciation and recognition of the contributions of Latin American artists to a global conversation.
