The first women philosophers, who belonged to the Pythagorean School, were also mathematicians and geometers. Despite the fact that their participation was an exception in ancestral times, they contributed considerably to the development of these areas. However, the world’s memory is whimsical: 25 centuries later, Latin American artists born in various places before 1950, faced both the paradoxes of history and those of the art world: by and large they were submitted to a troublesome and late recognition. Nevertheless, in this second decade of the 21st century we are able to understand better than ever how these great creators contributed to the development of geometric abstraction. They extended the field of vision and creation by challenging the rules and the very limits of the various movements of this great current throughout the continent. The exhibition Women Geometers, organized by the Atchucarry Art Center in association with Pietro Atchugarry Gallery and curated by Adriana Herrera, summons and celebrates the creations of a significant group of twelve Latin American pioneers proposing a dialogue that is unique in its genre.

About Piero Atchugarry Gallery

Piero Atchugarry gallery presents a contemporary art program and modern art survey. The gallery opened to the public in September 2013 with a Post-War Italian art exhibition. By January 2014 the gallery moved to a large stable adapted as an exhibition space in Garzón. In this space the program allowed outdoor and indoor proposal exploration, through the creation of dialogue between architectural features and curatorial practices.

On December 2018, the program expanded to North America with a second location, a 9000 square feet warehouse on 5520 NE 4th Avenue in the Design District neighborhood. The participation of the gallery in what is a boiling art community that connects Europe, Latin America and both coasts of the United States represents the commitment of the program to support and present the work of local and international artists with an institutional approach.
