With the support of her gallerist Rachel Conkright, Gego (Gertrud Goldschmidt, 1912–1994), a Venezuelan artist of German origin, installed the 1969 version of the work Reticulárea in the exhibition Latin American New Painting and Sculpture: Juan Downey, Agustín Fernández, Gego, Gabriel Morera, held at the Center for Inter-American Relations, New York (now known as the Americas Society); the work was installed in November 1969 and remained on exhibit until January 1970. According to the letter from Stanton L. Catlin to Conkright to which Gego refers in this brief note to Catlin (whom she calls “Todt” [sic] affectionately), as well as other accounts, the exhibition in general did not receive a great deal of attention from the New York press. It did, however, incite admiration and interest on the part of collectors, academics, curators, and directors of American museums. Though Reticulárea traveled to New York in 1969, it was to a certain extent, unusual for a work of this sort to embark on such a journey. Indeed, this was the first and only time that the work traveled. The situation was unusual not only due to its timing—immediately after it presentation in Caracas, and the tremendous effort that shipping and reinstalling the work entailed—but also due to the vast difference between the two settings in which it would be exhibited (Caracas in 1969, and New York in 1969–70). When the work returned, it would stay in Caracas for good, specifically at the Galería de Arte Nacional, which is at present the seat of the Museo de Bellas Artes of Caracas. In her letter to Todt, Gego expresses not only her satisfaction at how the show has been administered, but also shows an insistent concern about being present for and taking part in the disassembling and packing of the work. This letter (original in English, Spanish translation by María Elena Huizi in 2011) was among the documents selected for publication in the bilingual book Desenredando la red. La Reticulárea de Gego. Una antología de respuestas críticas / Untangling the Web: Gego’s Reticulárea, An Anthology of Critical Response, organized by María Elena Huizi and Ester Crespin, currently in the process of being published by The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Fundación Gego, Caracas.
