Gyula Kosice in conversation with Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro, the sixth title of the Conversations series, presents a fascinating exchange between Gyula Kosice, one of the leading exponents of the history of abstract art in Latin America, and Gabriel Pérez- Barreiro, director and chief curator of the Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Collection. This book records the conversations carried out for more than twenty years, which began shortly after the first encounter that Pérez-Barreiro had with Kosice's work in a retrospective of the artist in 1991. The book includes an introductory essay by the curator and art historian Andrea Giunta.
Gyula Kosice was born in 1924, in the town of Kosice, in present-day Slovakia. At four years old he emigrated to Argentina, where he lives until today. Sculptor, plastic artist, theorist and poet, Gyula Kosice is one of the most remarkable visionary artists of the 20th century. He was co-founder of the Madí movement in the 1940s and creator of the Hydrospatial City, a radical urban proposal that recreates a utopian environment suspended in space. Kosice is recognized as one of the forerunners of avant-garde kinetic light art.
