Geometry in mutation
Carmelo Arden Quin is an artist of great importance for the emergence and development, in the mid-1940s, of geometric abstraction in the Río de la Plata, more precisely as one of the founders of the Madí group. Its place in the history of Latin American and European art is undisputed and has global recognition, proof of this are the latest acquisitions by a series of important museums worldwide, such as the MoMa in New York or the TATE in London by name a few. Most of his career, over 60 years, was developed in Paris, but his influence spread both in the Río de la Plata and in European countries such as Italy, France or Hungary, in the United States and in Japan, where he is considered an undisputed master by an increasingly numerous group of creators.
