Meadows Museum Lecture: “Rafael Barradas and the Development of the Spanish Avant-Garde”

When: 
Thursday, January 19, 2017 - 6:00pm

Jed Morse, Chief Curator, Nasher Sculpture Center

Uruguayan artist Rafael Barradas spent time in Barcelona and Madrid in the second decade of the 20th century and developed his own formal language influenced by Cubism and Futurism that he termed Vibracionismo (Vibrationism). Barradas’s theories would prove influential for artists such as Joan Miró, Salvador Dalí, Celso Lagar and fellow Uruguayan Joaquin Torres-García, and lay the groundwork for the Spanish literary movement, Ultraism.
