Mark your calendar: on February 8th (Monday) the conference Form and Feeling: The Making of Concretism will take place at the CUNY Graduate Center.

The investigations presented in the conference will further contribute to the research informing the exhibition Form and Feeling: The Making of Concretism, scheduled to open at the Bronx Museum in the spring of 2018.
The conference is the culmination of a research project led by Antonio Sergio Bessa, Director of Curatorial and Education Programs at the Bronx Museum, in collaboration with Julieta Gonzalez, Chief Curator at Fundación Jumex, in Mexico City.
