This survey of the work of Gego (Gertrud Goldschmidt), one of the most important postwar artists in Latin America, charts her interdisciplinary artistic production through different fields: architecture, design, sculpture, drawing, printmaking, fabric, site-specific installations, spatial interventions, public art and pedagogy. The exhibition includes works in a variety of media from the mid-1940s to the early 1990s and is a substantial survey of the artist’s practice. 

Gego is organized by Pablo Léon de La Barra, Adjunct Curator of Latin American Art, Museu de Arte de São Paulo (MASP); Julieta González, independent curator and researcher and Tanya Barson, Chief Curator of the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA). 

Coordinated at Museo Jumex by Cindy Peña, Curatorial Assistant, Museo Jumex.
