Lygia Pape (1927–2004) was a founding member of Brazil's Neo-Concrete movement. Her early work developed out of European geometric abstraction (Concrete art), but Pape expanded these idioms, drawing on the visual traditions of her native country. Her paintings, sculptures, books and films have made a defining contribution to Brazil's artistic identity, as well as to the field of artist's books. Pape was closely affiliated with artists such as Lygia Clark and Hélio Oiticica and enjoyed comparable prominence and acclaim in Brazil. Outside of Brazil, however, Pape has remained less well known than her contemporaries, until the Reina Sofia and Serpentine Gallery's landmark show of 2011–12. The catalogue for that exhibition—the first English-language monograph on the artist—quickly went out of print and is now a rarity. This expanded, revised edition of that catalogue reveals her oeuvre for an English-speaking audience for the first time.

Geometric abstraction found its most dynamic, sensual and enduring expression in Latin America. Between 1930 and 1970, concrete, neoconcrete art and other varieties of abstraction thrived on this continent as nowhere else, and nowhere is this rich vein better documented than in the famous Cisneros Collection. This volume draws on the collection to showcase works from Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Mexico, Cuba, Venezuela and Colombia, all of which are contextualized with historical and artistic documents and essays. Among the many artists gathered in this definitive overview are Carmelo Arden-Quin, Wilys de Castro, Lygia Clark, Waldemar Cordeiro, Carlos Cruz-Díez, Gego, Mathias Göeritz, Carmen Herrera, Anna María Maiolino, Tomás Maldonado, José Mijares, Hélio Oiticica, Alejandro Otero, Lygia Pape, Mira Schendel, Loló Soldevilla, Rafael Soriano, Jesús Rafael Soto and Joaquín Torres-García.

Preceded by the heroic modernism of the 1920s and abruptly curtailed by World War II, the heterogeneous art movements of the 1930s have been comparatively neglected as concurrent cultural phenomena. The 30s were much more than a period of transition or crisis, witnessing as they did the massive expansion of Surrealism, and fervent debate between new movements in abstract and realist painting. Political turbulence was of course rife at this time, with the rise of totalitarian governments and the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War, provoking a fluid migration of artists across borders and unlikely exchanges of ideas. Published to coincide with a major exhibition at the Reina Sofía Museum in Madrid, Encounters with the 30s explores the micro-histories of the decade. Surrealism is covered in detail, along with abstract art (such as the Concrete Art, Circle, American Abstract Artist and Abstraction–Creation movements) and Mexican Realism, and key exhibitions of the period (such as the Nazis’ “Degenerate Art” shows and the World Fairs); photography, political poster art and the Spanish Civil War comprise other sections. The monograph is amply illustrated with works by Arp, Brassaï, Calder, Delaunay, Ernst, Gabo, Hepworth, Miró, Picasso, Weston and many lesser known artists of the era.

The profile of Latin American abstract art in North America and Europe has dramatically increased over the past decade or so, thanks in large part to the activities of the Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Collection. However, this is the first publication to specifically address the Concrete and Neoconcrete movements, spanning the 1930s through to the 1970s, and focusing on centers of activity throughout Latin America, in cities such as Montevideo, Buenos Aires, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Caracas. In these decades, artists such as Lygia Clark, Hélio Oiticica, Lygia Pape, Jesús Soto, Carlos Cruz-Diez, Judith Lauand, Geraldo de Barros, Hermelindo Fiaminghi, Luiz Sacilotto, Willys de Castro and Ferreira Gullar infused European Concrete art with fresh energy and warmth, extending it into the realms of performance and interactive sculpture (as seen in the works of Clark, Pape and Oiticica). The book organizes this rich range of work into five thematic sections: “Geometry,” “Illusion,” “Dialogue,” “Vibration” and “Universalism.” Accompanying an exhibition at the Reina Sofía, Concrete Invention also includes texts by several of the artists; an essay by sound artist and scholar Steve Roden; a questionnaire on the legacy of these movements answered by Luis Camnitzer, Jesús Carillo, Sofia Hernández Chong Cuy and Ana Longoni; and a series of geometric-abstract gatefolds designed for the catalogue by José León Cerrillo.

This retrospective of the witty and pioneering art of Antoni Miralda (born 1942) surveys the artist's 1960s "Eat Art" sculptures, and his development of sculpture into performance, for example, his wedding of the statue of Christopher Columbus in Barcelona and the Statue of Liberty in New York.

This beautiful, hefty catalogue of the most important works from one of the world's finest collections of Minimal, Arte Povera and Conceptual art includes work by Carl Andre, John Baldessari, Marcel Broodthaers, Hanne Darboven, Gilbert & George, Donald Judd, On Kawara, Mike Kelley, Martin Kippenberger, Joseph Kosuth, Sol LeWitt, Bruce Nauman, Gerhard Richter, Ed Ruscha, Robert Ryman, Robert Smithson and Lawrence Weiner, among others. In her essay, the esteemed independent curator and art historian Anne Rorimer writes, "Such is the breadth and depth of the Herbert Collection that an entire book on the art of the 1960s and 1970s could be written based on the many exemplary works included in it. As a group, works in the collection point to the revolutionary activity occurring at a time when long-held conventions associated with painting and sculpture were being questioned or overturned in the interest of aesthetic renewal. Each work, separately, speaks volumes about innovations in art production labeled by terms such as Minimal art, Arte Povera or Conceptual art. These terms, although by no means carved in stone, identify shared methods and goals pursued by artists on both sides of the Atlantic during the years leading up to and extending beyond 1968.
