Curatorial Gallery Talk: James Oles
Women artists have not only formed an essential part of the history of modern Latin American art, they are a specific focus of the Davis Museum’s collection, particularly in the areas of surrealism and abstraction. Join James Oles, senior lecturer in art at Wellesley and curator of the exhibition Art_Latin_America: Against the Survey, for a gallery talk highlighting major works by women artists, including Olga Albizu, Puerto Rico’s finest abstract painter, and the German-Venezuelan Gego, whose work is impossible to pigeonhole. Though these artists may be less famous than Frida Kahlo, their achievements are no less exciting.
