“Cy Twombly: Paradise”

Assembling selections from six decades’ worth of Cy Twombly’s production, including paintings, works on paper, and sculptures—some never shown before—this exhibition will, incredibly, be the first major solo presentation in Latin America of the late abstractionist’s work. His inimitable art, reflecting both the universal and the highly personal and eccentric, dissolves language into line and elides the distinction between writing and drawing, collapsing, in the process, the brushstroke and the word, mark-making and text, and, indeed, the acts of viewing and reading. With impressive loans, and accompanied by a major publication, Museo Jumex’s presentation at its recently inaugurated venue promises a formidable first posthumous survey of Twombly’s classical/radical body of work.
