Playing Games, Reinventing Traditions: Arturo Herrera

December 3rd, 2010

Episode 37 of 192 episodes

May 9, 2007 6:30 p.m. Like the Venezuelan Armando Reverón, whose paintings and life-sized dolls were recently on view at the Museum, many contemporary artists invent games, toys, and characters. In this program, Venezuelan-born Arturo Herrera, who uses cartoon and fairy tale images, discusses with Luis Pérez-Oramas, The Estrellita Brodsky Curator of Latin American Art at MoMA, and Glenn D. Lowry how his work engages traditions in his country of origin and offers new understandings of contemporary art. Photo courtesy of Paula Court
