I recently came across this photograph of the interior of the Venezuela pavilion from Expo 58 in Brussels, and I'd love to know more about it. Does anyone have any information (or photographs!) about this pavilion or what was shown? I have read that there was an abstract mural relief and a "tower of Brussels" by the Venezuelan artist Jesus Rafael Soto, but I cannot find any further information.
Hi, I'm trying to find out if a mural was on display somewhere at the '39 WF. Some people think it might have been in one of the Latin American country pavilions, like Brazil, Argentina, Chile, or Cuba. I think it is more likely to have come from being used as a temporary mural/banner for one of the many "special event" days or weeks the fair had. Perhaps from Mardi Gras week? This mural is over 40 feet long, so it definitely took up a lot of space and was visible. It's also painted on canvas. The artist signs his name "Ovidio 1939." Haven't been able to find the name "Ovidio," but it's probably the artist's first name. I feel like I've hit the end of the road trying to find any image that even has this hanging in the background. Has anyone seen this mural before? I have a few more pix if anyone's interested. Thanks.
