    Agpa portfolios: Latin American Graphics at the end of the 20th century

    The history of the AGPA portfolios –Artes Gráficas Panamericanas– began in 1971 when Cartón y Papel de México commissioned ten young Mexican artists to make an engraving of their own. The following year, with the incorporation of the company's subsidiaries in Colombia and Venezuela, the program grew in scope and importance: Cartón de Colombia S.A. expanded the objective of the program and requested graphic work from various Latin American artists, thus creating the first AGPA portfolio in Colombia.

    Again, in 1973, the company invited different Latin American artists, and some from Spain, who had not yet been summoned. Thus, and thanks to this dynamic, in the course of a few years, the collection that initially consisted of Mexican work extended its portfolio to all of Latin America, the United States, and to several European countries -France, Belgium, Spain, and Italy- within from a broad geographical vision where the Pan-American did not exclude the international. Alejandro Otero, Omar Rayo, Luis Díaz, Wilfredo Lam, Liliana Porter, and Lydia Okumura are just some examples of the geographic context in question. The program was called Pan American Graphic Arts and it would come to represent the vitality of printmaking on the continent and beyond.

    Portfolios AGPA: Gráfica Latinoamericana at the end of the 20th century presents a selection of 50 etchings and multiples, with an abstract and geometric tendency, that were part of these portfolios throughout all their editions (1971–2000). Through the different authors and techniques, he realizes form, and in particular geometry, as a language that was common in Latin America to the point of succeeding magical realism as a kind of lingua franca in the continent but also as a space. of experimentation and shared dialogue.

    It is not by chance that artists such as Fanny Sanín, José María Yturralde, and Luis Díaz are also among its ranks. This selection, which offers a first approach to the artistic production of Latin America, accentuates the dialogue with the continent, with the rest of the world, and with the region. However, the AGPA collection does not make a unique allusion to the MAMM - Colombia, and to its history, it also highlights the collection of other Colombian and foreign institutions with which this Museum shares the collection of AGPA portfolios - such as MoMa (USA) - MAM in Mexico among others.

    The varied production of artists from different generations since the 70s puts into perspective the abundance of creative manifestations that graphic work provides. Artists who have marked a significant trajectory in the arts scene, national and international, and who have made use of practically all engraving techniques, from woodcut to screen printing, through the mechanical reproduction of objects in 3 dimensions, stand out. and of so many others.

    Regarding the relevance of the AGPA portfolios in Colombia, it is one of the most constant and valuable cultural companies in the country. In annual folders, the company has not only disseminated the work of numerous Colombian artists of practically all current generations, making their engravings reach specialized sites in the country and abroad and to private collectors, but it has also allowed the knowledge of many artists foreigners, especially from Latin America ”. Efforts by the private sector for the dissemination of art while recovering the plural nature of engraving and the AGPA program.

    The portfolios constitute a broad panorama that allows us to understand, among others, the variety and complexity of contemporary Latin American engraving and the effect of systematic efforts to produce and present art in the region. Links between Colombian artists and the international scene over three decades.

Carlos Cruz-Diez

France Born in: 1923 Masterpieces

Carlos Cruz-Diez (Caracas, Venezuela, 1923 - Paris, France, 2019) is one of the major figures of kinetic and optical art and has received numerous awards for his work. His practice positions him as a contemporary theorist of color. His visual research, based on three chromatic conditions -- subtractive color, additive color, and reflection -- has contributed to a new approach of the color phenomenon by expanding his perceptual universe.

Carlos Cruz-Diez based his practice on the color as an autonomous reality, without any anecdote, evolving in real-time and real space without any help from the form or the support. There are eight axes of research that reveal the different behaviors of color: Additive Color, Physichromie, Chromatic Induction, Chromointerference, Transchromia, Chromosaturation, Chromoscope, and Color in Space.

In 1940, Carlos Cruz Diez was studying at the Art School in Caracas. In 1944, he was working as a graphic designer for the "Creole Petroleum Corporation". In 1946, he became the Creative Director of the advertising agency "McCann-Erickson in Venezuela. In 1957, he founded the "Estudio Artes Visuales" dedicated to graphic and industrial design. In 1959, he completed his first work entitled “Additive Color and Physiochromia".

In 2005, his family created the "Cruz-Diez Foundation" dedicated to the conservation, development, dissemination, and research of the artist's conceptual heritage. Between 1972 and 1973, he taught "Kinetic Techniques" at the Beaux-Arts School in Paris. In 2012, he was appointed Officiel the National Order of the Legion of Honour.
