Marta Minujín: Arte! Arte! Arte!


by Donna Wingate (Editor), Marta Minujin (Artist), Darsie Alexander (Contributor), Rodrigo Alonso (Contributor)

This handsome volume is published on the occasion of the Jewish Museum’s retrospective of the Argentinian artist Marta Minujín (born 1943). Celebrated for her performance art, happenings and large-scale public works, Minujín has long been a leading figure of the Latin American avant-garde. Arte! Arte! Arte! provides an overview of her career, tracing her intersections with American, European, and Latin American developments in postwar art and exploring her relevance for subsequent generations of artists.

The publication is illustrated extensively throughout with Minujín’s artworks and documentation of the artist at work. Punctuating these images are critical essays by Darsie Alexander, chief curator at the Jewish Museum, and Rodrigo Alonso, the Argentinian journalist and curator. An interview with Minujín, "Art Protects Me," concludes the book, focusing on the artworks she created during the height of the pandemic.
