During a few decades of dramatic social change and optimism, artists in Montevideo, Buenos Aires, S o Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Caracas developed a new "concrete" language independent of representative imagery. Concrete Matters presents some 70 works from the mid-1930s to the 1970s by artists who developed concrete art. It highlights the Brazilian neo-concrete movement, with artists such as Lygia Clark, Willys de Castro and Heli Oiticica, and also includes works by Max Bill, Alu sio Carv o, Waldemar Cordeiro, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Geraldo de Barros, Willys de Castro, Gego, Judith Lauand, Ra l Lozza, Gyula Kosice, Tom's Maldonado, Juan Mel , Juan Molenberg, Alejandro Otero, Lygia Pape, Rhod Rothfuss, Luiz Sacilotto, Mira Schendel, Ivan Serpa, Jes's Soto, Joaqu n Torres-Garc a and Anatol Wladyslaw. The selection draws on the Colecci n Patricia Phelps de Cisneros.
