On March 12 of this year, Thames and Hudson released the 3rd edition of Edward Lucie-Smith's seminal book Latin American Since 1900. As a gallery that has at its core the idea that Latin American art is fundamental to the history of Modern art, we were delighted to collaborate on this important publication.

Design Historian Libby Sellers takes readers through some of the most important pieces included in her exhibition Color and Production: From the Atom to the Void​, accessible online as part of Frieze New York's digital programming. Included in her selection is Uruguayan artist Carmelo Arden Quin's untitled painting of the mid-1980s, a piece whose colors, materials, and textures are emblematic of his "Plastique" series. "Rebelling against the spatial and ideological constraints of the traditional rectangular or square canvas," Sellers writers, "[Arden Quin's] mutable sculptures and paintings of irregular shape with moveable components (coplanals) embraced a range of modern transparent, translucent, and illuminated materials." Color and Production: From the Atom to the Void is on display in the Frieze Viewing Room through May 15.
