The Gibbes Museum of Art debuts its Pan American Modernism: Avant-Garde Art in Latin America and the United States exhibition on Oct. 6, showcasing the artistic presence of modernism across the Americas between 1919 and 1979. The focal point is "modernism as an intercontinental phenomenon" and how it manifested when combined with the influence of Latin American artists. "Pan American Modernism focuses on the breadth of modernism that exists in the Pan American regions and the similarities shared among individuals in these various parts of the Americas," says Angela Mack, executive director of the Gibbes. Mack's aim is to give the general public a fuller understanding of modernism and how it led to influence other art forms. The art will be divided into five sections: Mexican Muralism and Its Legacy, The Female Muse, Abstract Expressionism, Modernist Photography, and Geometric Abstraction and Its Legacy. Corresponding events with this exhibition include live music by the Garage Cuban Band, a public tour of the exhibit with curator Pam Wall, and a screening of a film about Cuban life.
