Possibilities Of The Object - Experiments In Modern And Contemporary Brazilian Art
|Author||Paulo Venacio Filho|
|Publisher||Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh|
This book examines the pioneering role Brazilian artists played in the innovative international art scene of the 1950s to 70s. Connecting the work of well-known and widely-exhibited artists such as Hélio Oiticica, Lygia Ckark and Mira Schendel with the work of some of their lesser-known contemporaries and the younger generation of artists that followed, it is a celebration of some of the beautiful and artistically radical sculptures with which Brazilian artists have tried to redefine what an art object cab actually be.
