The Museo de la Solidaridad Salvador Allende, based in Santiago de Chile, opened the exhibition Rojo. MSSA 2020-2021 Collection. Curatorially articulated by the cultural and political implications of the color red, the show brings together more than 100 pieces from its collection, which were produced by renowned artists between the 1970s and the last decade.
Thematically, the exhibition is structured around three concepts: ideology, color field and body. In this sense, red works as a symbol of the left-wing movements that gave rise to the museum in the 1970s, as well as exploring the connotations and visual experimentations by the artists from their respective disciplines.
Among the list of artists in the show, it’s possible to highlight Carlos Cruz-Diez, Julio Le Parc, Jesús Rafael Soto and Victor Vasarely, which makes this a special opportunity to delve into kinetic art.
The exhibition will be open to the public until January 30, 2021.
