Soto: The Fourth DimensionSoto: The Fourth Dimension

Published by La Fábrica.
Text by Manuel Cirauqui, Mónica Amor, Jean Clay.

Over a career spanning more than five decades, Venezuelan artist Soto (1923–2005) played a fundamental role in the evolution of op and kinetic art, and postwar Latin American abstraction.

Breaking away in the 1950s from the conventional separation of painting and sculpture, his practice moved progressively beyond the visual field to become emblematic of the radical shift undergone by the art object in subsequent years. Transcending the optical research of his early work, he formed part of the first group of kinetic artists in Paris together with Jean Tinguely, Iacov Agam and Victor Vasarely.

Soto: The Fourth Dimension offers a comprehensive overview of the artist’s influential work, from his early abstractions to his Penetrables, as well as his striking murals for the UNESCO headquarters in Paris.

Soto: Vibrations 1950–1960Soto: Vibrations 1950–1960

Published by Hauser & Wirth Publishers.
Text by Jean-Paul Ameline.

Renowned as a founder of kinetic art, Soto (1923–2005) explored the disintegration of the art object, breaking new ground while anticipating conceptual strategies to come. Soto: Vibrations 1950–1960, the first publication to focus on the critical first decade of the Venezuelan artist's life in Paris, follows Soto's career from his earliest Mondrian-inspired paintings restricted to pure yellows, reds, blues and greens to his plexiglass paintings that draw on the experiments of Duchamp and Moholy-Nagy. Imbued with vibration and movement, Soto's early works constitute a breakthrough in his output, laying crucial groundwork for his later kinetic works and the fluid style that shaped his artistic vocabulary.

Soto aimed to engage viewers as active participants in the process of perception and experimented with the serial repetition of color and geometric forms in an effort to create optical vibrations and what he referred to as "the displacement of the viewer."

Jesús Soto in Conversation with Ariel JiménezJesús Soto in Conversation with Ariel Jiménez

Published by Fundación Cisneros/Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros.

Venezuela’s primary exponent of Kinetic and Op art, Jesús Soto (1923–2005) is one of the most important Latin American artists of the twentieth century. Here, in conversations with Ariel Jiménez, Soto recounts his childhood in Ciudad Bolivar, Venezuela; his first encounters with painting; his unending search for “thinking” time and space as dimensions beyond pictorial representation; and the development of his ideas that finally lead him to the creation of his famous Penetrables, large kinetic sculptures through which the viewer walks. This volume is a revised and expanded edition of Conversaciones con Jesús Soto (2001), which served as the inspiration for the Fundación Cisneros’ Conversaciones/ Conversations series.

Soto: Paris and Beyond, 1950-1970Soto: Paris and Beyond, 1950-1970

Published by Grey Art Gallery, New York University.
Edited by Estrellita B. Brodsky. Text by Estrellita B. Brodsky, Sarah K. Rich.

Soto: Paris and Beyond, 1950–1970 accompanies the first large-scale exhibition dedicated to Jesús Soto to be held at a New York museum in more than 35 years. It highlights this major Venezuelan artist’s early career, following his relocation from Caracas to Paris in 1950, and offers a rare opportunity to trace Soto’s visionary trajectory and his influence upon, and exchanges with, other members of the avant-garde. Soto’s achievements in the field of interactive art established his reputation as both an international exponent of kinetic art and one of the most influential Latin American artists of the twentieth century. This fully illustrated catalogue includes essays by curator Estrellita B. Brodsky and art historian Sarah K. Rich.
