About the exhibition:

Marta Minujín: Arte! Arte! Arte! shows the bold and influential career of Marta Minujin, which has spanned the last six decades. At a young age, Minujín established an international reputation as a key artistic voice. Born to a Russian-Jewish family in 1943 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, she began her career in the late 1950s creating cardboard constructions and roughly hewn paintings. By the early 1960s, she had started experimenting with mattresses, creating colorful soft sculptures that would define her signature style. Minujín is one of Argentina’s most recognized artists and celebrated cultural personalities today. She continues to produce multimedia installations, participatory events, paintings, and sculptures, attesting to her unceasing versatility. Well into the twenty-first century, Minujín’s art persists with vital force, critical vision, and clarity of purpose.

The Jewish Museum is committed to making its virtual programs accessible to all. Please let us know if you need any additional accommodations, including ASL interpretation.
