Gyula Kosice was born in Hungary in 1924. Four years later his family immigrated to Buenos Aires, where he studid drawing and sculpture. he contributed to the Review “Arturo”, and was one of the founders of the MADI movement. During the late forties and fifties, after Arden Quin had moved to Paris, he edited and published seven copies of “Arte MADI”, (1947 – 1954) all of which are a part of this exhibition.
MADI is a great artistic adventure, and perhaps, the only existing movement which can justify half a century of existence. MADI is more than an avant-garde movement; it has an underlying wave with several and differing offspring. It is the slow-paced growth of a tectonic plate in the history of art. Indeed, since art and environment are perveived as the fusion of two cultural phenomena, the progression and expression of both of these blend in everyday life.
