RETURN, ALWAYS RETURN
The first solo exhibition of the Venezuelan artist (1923-2014) celebrates the 100th anniversary of his birth, showcasing his cross-cultural practice that helped define Latin American modernism. The exhibition features works from various periods, from his discovery of the mythological universe in ancient cultures to his return to Venezuela, where he moved freely between figuration and abstraction. The presentation highlights his diverse styles that reflect his unwavering belief in the power of art to renew humanity at its origin.
The exhibition offers a unique opportunity to experience Latin American art in the post-war period. Vigas’s works resonate powerfully to deepen his existential discourse rooted in Latin American heritage. They embody what the artist called ‘prehistoric dream’, the source of a universal creative impulse that predates cultures and connects to man’s natural state unhindered by cultural differences, social standards, and hierarchies.
