Drawn from the permanent collection of the Art Museum of the Americas,Constellations surveys the dynamic, inter-American history of geometric abstraction across the twentieth century. The works on display illustrate the rich cultural and visual history of geometric abstraction as it evolved into a range of expressive and divergent practices across the region. The universal and timeless structures of geometric forms and colors took on specific local meanings, and Constellations suggests the different values – modern, utopian, collective, transformative – that abstraction embodied at critical moments across the Americas.
