Soto’s works are integrated into the architecture of the Teresa Carreño Theatre, in dialogue with the building.
Soto’s works were carried out at the same time as the cultural centre Teresa Carreño, Venezuela’s most important theatre and one of the most prestigious in Latin America. The architects, whose project was selected through a competition, were interested in the urban dimension and the dialogue between the different surrounding parks and museums. They organized the building around a public space, a meeting and transition place between the city, the park and the museums.
Soto’s monumental extension with its virtual suspended cubes welcomes visitors in the Teresa Carreño’s hall since 1972.
It extends from the entrance to the Ríos Reyna main hall upstairs, where two stage curtains designed by Soto are installed.
The work “Cuadrados vibrantes y progresión”, initially situated inside the building, was moved to the ground floor, outside, on the wall adjacent to the ancient Ateneo de Caracas.
The “Pirámides vibrantes“ have crowned the José Felix Rivas hall of the theatre since 1982, reflecting equilateral triangles, the geometrical module of reference for the construction of the building.
