To celebrate the MoMA's publication Alfredo Boulton and his Contemporaries: Critical Dialogues in Venezuelan Art, 1912–1974, on September 25, 2008, Luis Pérez-Oramas, The Estrellita Brodsky Curator of Latin American Art at MoMA, moderated a panel discussion on Venezuelan art and architecture of that time period. The panel brought together Hugo Achugar, poet, essayist and professor of Spanish at the University of Miami; Carlos Brillembourg, architect; Sofia Vollmer de Maduro of the Alberto Vollmer Foundation in Caracas; and Edward Sullivan, professor of Fine Arts at New York University, to provide an overview of Venezuelan art, architecture, and cultural history in relation to the period addressed by the publication and the writings of Alfredo Boulton and his contemporaries.
