The MADI Museum, in collaboration with the Kolodzei Art Foundation, opens Historic MADI: Its Roots on Friday, February 17, 2006 running until June 18. Curators for the show are Dorothy Masterson and Natalia Kolodzei. The MADI Movement begun in 1946 by a group headed by Carmelo Arden Quin in Buenos Aires and is known for irregular shape canvases and bold geometric forms. In the exhibit are historical documents recently acquired by the Mastersons including possibly the only surviving copy of Arturo (1944) which includes the MADI manifesto by Carmelo Arden Quin. Dorothy Masterson’s research into early geometric artists from Uruguay and Argentina is realized in the show through the works of artists including the following; from Uruguay - Joaquin Torres Garcia, Rodd Rothfuss, Bolivar, Carmello Arden Quin and Volf Roitman; and from Argentina - Martin Blaszko, Caceres Sobrea, Ionesco, Diji Loan, Gyua Kosice and Ennio Iommi.
With complete freedom, the MADI artists used a broad spectrum of avant-garde European art, including Russian Constructivism…as an inspiration for the MADI movement. Natalia Kolodzei concentrated on pre-MADI routes from Russia as well as explorations into the 20th century Russian Geometric abstraction. The artists in the show include El Lissitzky, Ilya Chashnik, Nikolai Suetin, Iakov Chernikhov, Alexandra Exter, Liubov Popova, Kazimir Malevich, Alexander Rodchenko, Varvara Stepanova, Leonid Borisov, Valentina Lebedeva-Lesin, Andrei Proletsky, Leonid Borisov, Leonid Lamm, Vyacheslav Koleichuk, San San (Alexander Karasev), Mikhail Molochnikov, Gennadii Zubkov, and Eduard Shteinberg. The works are borrowed from private collection as well as from the Kolodzei Collection of Russian and Eastern European Art.
