Latin America has a long and original tradition in Abstract Art, circumscribed between the early 1930s and the late 1970s. It is characterized by it’s experimentalism, plurality, the challenge of canonical ideas related to art and particular ways of dialogue, coexisting in tension or participation within a complex process of modernity (and modernization) in the context of the political regimes of the time.
