Hans Hofmann: the Chimabote project : the synergistic promise of modern art and urban architecture
The Synergestic Promise of Modern Art and Urban Architecture. Hofmann was one of the most influential European artists in the birth of American abstract expressionism. This catalogue contains the pieces that Hofmann conceived to decorate the church in Chimbote, Peru, commissioned to the Catalan architect Josep-Lluis Sert but never built. This publication extensively documents the proposal in its historical context, aiming to offer a wider interpretation on the twentieth-century project of a renewed collaboration between art and architecture.
