Over nine years of conversations between the renowned Venezuelan kinetic artist Jesús Soto (1923–2005), and art historian Ariel Jiménez (former FC/CPPC Chief Curator), provides insight into Jesús Soto’s involvement in the development of kinetic art in Paris in the 1950s and 60s, and his subsequent work in the geometric abstract movements in Venezuela. Based on Conversaciones con Jesus Soto, originally published by the Fundación Cisneros in 2001 and 2005, this book has been expanded and revised with the inclusion of illustrations of key artworks by the artist. Soto is recognized today as one of the most important Latin American artists of the century.

The digital version includes excerpts from one of Soto’s last interviews; archival documentaries of the artist at work; slideshows of rare images from exhibitions, including his solo show at Galerie Denise René in Paris, 1961, et al.

Ariel Jiménez was the Curator (1998–2000) and Chief Curator (2000–2011) of the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros, and Director (2004–2006) and Curator (2006–2011) of the Fundación de Arte Moderno Jesús Soto in Ciudad Bolívar, Venezuela. He has researched and written extensively about modern and contemporary art in Latin America
