Alfredo Boulton: Looking at Venezuela, 1928– 1978
through January 21, 2024

“Alfredo Boulton (1908–1995) is considered one of the most important champions of modern art in Venezuela and a key intellectual of twentieth-century modernism. He was a pioneer of modern photography, an art critic, a researcher and historian of Venezuelan art, a friend to many of the great artists and architects of the twentieth century. Despite the important role Boulton played, he is shockingly underrecognized outside of his home country.

Drawn extensively from the trove of papers and photographs in the Alfredo Boulton archive, which the Getty Research Institute acquired in 2020, the exhibition explores Boulton from several angles, focusing on this photographic work, his connections to the artists of his time, and his crucial involvement in the development of art history in Venezuela. ”
