This month's Focus on Art, MOLAA's in-depth guided tour of a featured artist in their collection, spotlights Argentinean figurative artist Antonio Bernie. Bernie, hailed as a child prodigy in his early career, went on to become one of the faces of the Latin American branch of social realism art movement, dubbed Nuevo Realismo. His works, including paintings and collages, depict social hardship and poverty, including the aftermath of Buenos Aires industrialization. His work is vibrant with exaggerated detail—he paints human faces with unparalleled empathy. Join a MOLAA docent this afternoon for an interactive look at Berni's life and legacy.
