Louis Stern Fine Arts is pleased to present “Alfredo Ramos Martinez and Latin American Modernism.” The exhibition of paintings, drawings, sculptures and mixed media works, made from 1932 to 2017, explores connections and correspondences between a pioneering Mexican Modernist and a varied array of younger Latin American artists.

Other artists whose works were selected for the show are Jean Charlot, José Luis Cuevas and Armando Romero of Mexico; Alejandro Xul Solar, Andres Bancalari and Anita Payró of Argentina; Claudio Bravo and Roberto Matta of Chile; Carlos Cruz-Diez and Manuel Ojeda of Venezuela; and Cecilia Z. Miguez of Uruguay. 

 
 

Alfredo Ramos Martinez and Latin American Modernism is part of the Participating Gallery Program of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles, taking place from September 2017 through January 2018 at more than 70 cultural institutions across Southern California. Pacific Standard Time is an initiative of the Getty.
