'This is a part of the art world that has often been neglected; the show and the catalogue teach us what a loss that is.'  Cassone, July 2014

On Friday 22 August, the Royal Academy is celebrating its well-received exhibition Radical Geometry: Modern Art of South America’    with a special Latin Takeover reflecting the vibrant colour and energy of this immersive exhibition.

Kick-start your bank holiday weekend with an evening of Latin flavours and rhythms, starting with a mojito outside in the  courtyard, where there will be South American music and dance courtesy of Brazilian Grammy Award winner Zeu Azevedo. Once you’ve soaked up the atmosphere, step inside to encounter art that changes as you move around it, paintings that break free of the canvas and interactive work which will challenge your perception of space and colour.

A free tour, Breaking the Boundaries: South American Art of the 20th Century, offers the opportunity to learn more about the fascinating backdrop of social change and political optimism that fuelled artistic innovation across five South American cities. There will also be a Latin-inspired menu to transport your taste buds to the continent that gave us some of the most exciting and original abstract art ever made.

Tickets £14.50 (includes exhibition and mojito). So book now and have a great evening.
