El Museo del Barrio

Coming up, Argentine-Italian artist Lucio Fontana at El Museo! El Museo del Barrio is pleased to present artist Lucio Fontana’s 1968 Spatial Environment [Ambiente Spaziale]. Conceived in relation to the artist’s innovative Spatialism movement, starting from 1949, Fontana’s Spatial Environments are immersive environments that viewers enter and navigate. Reconstructed with the authorization of the Fondazione Lucio Fontana, the all-white, labyrinthine Spatial Environment (1968) at El Museo will follow the exact specifications of the artist’s final work in the series, originally conceived and presented at documenta 4 in Kassel, Germany shortly before Fontana’s death.

The installation coincides with the exhibition at @metbreuer Lucio Fontana: On the Threshold (on view January 23 through April 14, 2019). .

#ELTEATRO | Take a Seat! in El Museo’s History! El Museo del Barrio initiates its 50th anniversary celebration in 2019 with the re-opening of its landmark theater, El Teatro, in February, after a 13-month-long renovation. As one of the oldest theaters in Harlem and the largest performance arts space within a museum in the nation, the history living in our Broadway-style theatre is rich and compelling.
.
.
Dedicate a seat in El Teatro with a beautiful commemorative seat plate displaying your name, or honoring a relative, friend or organization of your choice.
.
.
By naming a seat at El Teatro, you make a lasting statement in support of the nation’s leading Latino and Latin American cultural institution. As with theatre tickets, the seat contributions are 100% tax deductible as a charitable contribution to the full extent of the law, vary by location.
