Between 1919 and 1979, the Americas were engaged in a "rich visual dialogue." In the Gibbes' current Pan American Modernism: Avant-Garde Art in Latin America and the United States exhibit (on view through Jan. 7) more than 70 works of art from the collection of the University of Miami's Lowe Art Museum are on display, featuring artists from the Pan American regions of North America, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean.

The pieces are grouped into five categories: Mexican Muralism and Its Legacy, The Female Muse, Abstract Expressionism, Modernist Photography, and Geometric Abstraction and Its Legacy.

Visit the Gibbes for a bilingual tour of Pan American Modernism: Avant-Garde Art in Latin America and the United States this Sun. Dec. 10 and next Sun. Dec. 17 starting at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are free for members, $15 for adults, $13 for seniors and military, and $10 for students.

The Gibbes announces new fall exhibit and event lineup celebrating Latin American modern art Beyond our borders “There is a common misconception that the experimental, innovative course of modernism came solely from the United States and spread outward,” says Gibbes Museum of Art curator of exhibitions Pam Wall. While the US tends to be the hero of its own narrative, in this case, the true heroes, the trailblazers of modern art, were spread across the Americas. By Mary Scott Hardaway Culture Shock
