Fixated on furniture? Appreciate the aesthetics of design? Moderno: Design for Living in Brazil, Mexico, and Venezuela, 1940–1978 is now on view!

Organized by the Americas Society in New York, Moderno is the first exhibition to examine how design transformed the domestic landscape of Latin America during a period marked by major stylistic developments and social and political change. With over 130 works, including furniture, ceramics, metalwork, textiles, and graphic design by Lina Bo Bardi, Clara Porset, Miguel Arroyo, and others, Moderno explores a moment in Latin American history when modern art entered the private home and turned it into a site for creative experimentation. While radical and innovative for the time, modern furniture has become so globally accepted that many of these pieces would look at home in our own domestic spaces.

To further highlight this chapter in the history of Latin American modernism, the Blanton’s showing will expand upon the America Society's New York presentation to include additional furniture, domestic objects, and a selection of Brazilian, Mexican, and Venezuelan paintings from both the Blanton’s holdings and private collections. Moderno presents new scholarship in the field of Latin American art and design, bringing together superb examples of furniture, ceramics, metalwork, textiles, and printed material from artists and designers including: Sergio Rodrigues, Lina Bo Bardi, Joaquim Tenreiro, and José Zanine Caldas of Brazil; Don Shoemaker, Clara Porset, and Pedro Ramírez Vásquez of Mexico; and Miguel Arroyo and María Luisa Zuloaga de Tovar of Venezuela.

Don't miss this intricate and intriguing show! On view through January 17, 2016.
