During a few decades of dramatic social change and optimism, artists in Montevideo, Buenos Aires, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Caracas developed a new "concrete" language independent of representative imagery.
Concrete Matters, the exhibition catalogue for a show at Moderna Museet in Stockholm 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 Helió Oiticica, and also includes works by Max Bill, Aluísio Carvão, Waldemar Cordeiro, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Geraldo de Barros, Willys de Castro, Gego, Judith Lauand, Raúl Lozza, Gyula Kosice, Tomás Maldonado, Juan Melé, Juan Molenberg, Alejandro Otero, Lygia Pape, Rhod Rothfuss, Luiz Sacilotto, Mira Schendel, Ivan Serpa, Jesús Soto, Joaquín Torres-García and Anatol Wladyslaw.
