Join ArtTable for an intimiate look at the first survey exhibition in the United States of Marta Minujín, a defining force of Latin American art whose trajectory intersected with the major artistic developments of the postwar period while reflecting a singular spirit and vision infused by her sharp intellect, irreverent humor, and performative presence. Hosted by The Jewish Museum, this tour will be led by Associate Curator, Rebecca Shaykin.

This extensive exhibition includes nearly 100 works organized to reflect Minujín’s bold experimentation over six decades. The exhibition charts Minujín’s influential career in Buenos Aires as well as time spent in Paris, New York, and Washington, DC, through a range of pioneering, mattress-based soft sculptures; fluorescent large-scale paintings; psychedelic drawings and performances; and vintage film footage. The artist’s ephemeral works – happenings, participatory installations, and monumental public art – are presented through rarely-seen photographs, video, and other documentation.
