Marcellvs L. at Astrup Fearnley Museet (09/09/2013)
'Imagine Brazil' is the fourth exhibition in the series focusing on a country's art scene. The Brazilian art history is well documented, especially the Brazilian modernism, such as Concrete, Neoconcrete and Tropicália movement, which developed independently but also in deep dialogue with modernist tendencies in Europe and North America. Artists such as Oscar Niemeyer, Lygia Clark, Hélio Oiticica, Lygia Pape and Ernesto Neto, are all part of the international modernist and artistic heritage and are all internationally recognized. In parallel with this great modernist tradition is also an explicit Brazilian conceptual art that was less dogmatic and structuralist than their counterparts in Europe and North America, but more open, more poetic, more politically engaged, as we can see in the works of Cildo Meireles and Vik Muniz.
With 'Imagine Brazil' the curators wants to showcase a diverse picture of what is happening in Brazilian contemporary art. 14 young artists are selected for what they perceive as important representatives of the emerging art scene in Brazil, but also in terms of their international significance. In addition to showcase the young artists the exhibition wishes to put their artistic expression in a historical context. Therefore, each of them was asked to choose an older artist, which they consider important for Brazilian contemporary art, to accompany them in the exhibition.
Dates: 11 October 2013 – 02 March 2014 Opening: 10 October 2013
