From the nineteen-twenties on, Latin America became a suitable terrain in which to apply the ideal embodied by the Modern Movement. This period is approached in the works of the Venezuelan artist Alexander Apostol by exploring the remnants of that ideal of modernity from a critical standpoint. Through the texts by the architect Juan Herreros and the art critics and curators Julieta Gonzalez and Cuauhtemoc Medina, various aspects of his oeuvre are analyzed alongside the context in which it arose.
Whether from the perspective of architecture, art history or a political analysis of contemporary Venezuela, each author contributes to a comprehensive study of Alexander Apostol's production.
