Bold and romantic, the oeuvre of Delia Cancela has the markings of a young artist. In her world, love and music live together in an impassioned vision. Delia is part of the generation of artists of the sixties connected to the Instituto Di Tella, the once epicenter of avant-garde contemporary Argentine art. Since that time, the idea of art that she has expressed and created in her work has been expansive. With this anthological exhibition and the important book that we publishing to accompany it, the Museum of Modern Art of Buenos Aires celebrates her career.
The exhibition covers the different periods of her work with a broad selection that includes her first collages, such as Páginas Vogue / Vogue Pages (1962), and paintings that evoke the feminine universe and love, such as Corazón destrozado / Shattered Heart (1964), that form part of a series that Delia develops throughout her artistic life.
The poetics of Cancela has always been elusive in front of the canon of art, and this exhibition is oriented towards thinking of her work from a current perspective that revitalizes the reflections around it. Her oeuvre, dedicated to the feminine condition from a romantic vision, unfolds in space and manifests itself in an intimate and impassioned atmosphere.
