Descripción de editorial
This bilingual (English-Spanish) book presents an extended dialogue between the Argentine artist and poet Gyula Kosice, and writer and curator Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro.
Gyula Kosice (born 1924) is an innovative Argentine artist and poet. His constructions and sculptures were inspired as much by local discussions and disputes in the cafés of 1940s Buenos Aires as by the international avant-garde. In dialogue with Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro in this latest volume from the Fundación Cisneros’ Conversaciones/Conversations series, Kosice recalls his contributions to an era of hotly debated movements and manifestos; the magazine Arturo; the formation of Arte Madí; his interactive mobiles; and his groundbreaking use of materials like neon and water to articulate a futuristic vision that includes Hydrospatial City, a community suspended in space.
Conversaciones/Conversations is a series of bilingual books published by The Fundación Cisneros/Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros (FC/CPPC) featuring unique in-depth conversations between Latin American artists and leading critics, curators, and art historians. Each illustrated volume presents a comprehensive first-hand account of the artist’s development accompanied by critical reflections by the authors.
