Concrete Cuba: Cuban Geometric Abstraction from the 1950s

Here it is. The book you have wanted. The book you need. The book that never existed, in any form, until now. Concrete Cuba: Cuban Geometric Abstraction from the 1950s from David Zwirner Books is the first major survey of concretism in Cuba from the late 1940s through the early 1960s—the pivotal years building up to and including the Cuban Revolution. The work in this eye-opening volume—by Pedro Álvarez, Wifredo Arcay, Mario Carreño, Salvador Corratgé, Sandú Darié (whose untitled 1950s painting is reproduced here), Luis Martínez Pedro, Alberto Menocal, José M. Mijares, Pedro de Oraá, José Ángel Rosabal, Loló Soldevilla and Rafael Soriano—is every bit as revolutionary as Fidel himself. A featured title at our bookstores at Design Miami and Art Basel Miami, it is also one of our top ten Staff Favorite Holiday Gift Books, 2016.
