The great success of the exhibition and catalogue El Taller Torres-García: The School of the South and Its Legacy (1991-1993), which was initiated and co-curated by Cecilia de Torres, led to her establishing a gallery to show the work of the artists of El Taller (TTG) and the contemporary artists who share in the tradition. Please visit our past exhibitions as well as our current exhibition pages.

The Taller Torres-García, which existed from 1943 to 1962, was the most significant art community of its time in Latin America. Combining avant-garde European movements such as De Stijl, and the Bauhaus, with the iconography of the Indo American cultures, the goal of Torres-García's workshop or El Taller, as it was called, was to create an autonomous art tradition for the Americas. This tradition was based on Torres-García's own theories of the visual arts which he named "Constructive Universalism."
