This exhibition will span the career of Venezuelan artist Oswaldo Vigas (b. 1926 Valencia, Carabobo, Venezuela; d. 2014 Caracas, Capital District, Venezuela), curated by his son, the filmmaker Lorenzo Vigas.  Thus it will be a very personal tribute to this artist, who studied medicine and received a degree in 1951.  While at university, he took several art classes and, in 1952, received the National Visual Arts Award and had a significant solo exhibition in Caracas.  This prize granted him a plane ticket to Paris, where he relocated in 1952.  In Paris, he discovered Pablo Picasso and Cubism, creating a new framework that became his signature style.

 This exhibition will be on view in the Museum's Focus Gallery; all works are on loan from the Fundación Oswaldo Vigas.
