As part of the Duke House Exhibition Series, The Institute of Fine Arts is pleased to present the work of the Argentinian artists Sarah Grilo (1919–2007) and José Antonio Fernández-Muro (1920–2014) at The Institute of Fine Arts as part of the Duke House Exhibition Series. The exhibition seeks to map the influences and movements that inspired the artists' practices from the 1960s through the 1980s. The show features a selection of abstract paintings which create an intimate dialogue between Fernández-Muro’s mimicry of urban and industrial patterns and Grilo’s morphological style. In addition to these paintings, the exhibition also includes an array of exhibition catalogues, publications, documentary photographs, and other rare archival materials. Grilo/Fernández-Muro: 1962–1984 was organized by Andrea Carolina Zambrano, Damasia Lacroze, Emireth Herrera, and Juan Gabriel Ramírez Bolívar, and was made possible through the support of The Institute of Fine Arts, NYU; Cecilia de Torres, Ltd.; and the Estate of Sarah Grilo and José Antonio Fernández-Muro. Funded by ISLAA.
