Exhibition at the MALBA, Buenos Aires, Argentina - 14 October 2016 until 17 February 2017

One of the few women to have produced monumental sculptures, Alicia Penalba (1913-1982) is a major figure in the history of non-figurative Argentine art. An admirer of Brancusi, Arp, Giacometti and Pevsner, she attended the Ossip Zadkine studio at the Grande Chaumière in Paris in 1949 and 1950. In 1951, after destroying her earlier work, she began making her first abstract sculptures. In 1957, the first solo show of her work, which featured totemic bronze sculptures, was held.
This book is the catalogue of the first solo exhibition of Alicia Penalba ever held in a museum in Argentina. It includes a selection of her abstract sculptures from different series (totemic, winged, monumental, and petits works) produced from the time she moved to Paris in 1948 until her unexpected death in 1982.
Product of collaboration with the Alicia Penalba archive, it includes as well sketches, photographs, letters, articles in the press, and sound and film materials on the artist's thinking and production process.
