In this context, EspacioArte presented homage to Kenneth Kemble in which exhibited some of his most significant pieces. The artist was a precursor on the national scene and his vanguard creations marked an era in contemporary art, redefining the concept of what was considered art in the latter 1950s. Kenneth Kemble had a outstanding career and, throughout it, received a great number of prizes and mentions around the world. His influence and contribution can to this day be seen in the work of young artists who continue to innovate and advance a high-quality art with a strong poetic content.
