Brasiliana: Installations from 1960 to the Present

Published by Walther König, Köln
Edited by Max Hollein, Martina Weinhart. Text by Cauę Alves, Monica Amor, Michael Asbury, Paula Azulgaray, Fernando Cocchiarale, Rafael Cardoso, Jochen Volz, Guilherme Wisnik.

Installation art emerged in Brazil in the early 1960s as artists extended abstract painting beyond the canvas and into three-dimensional experiences. Contemporary Brazilian artists continue to pursue the sensory and mobile possibilities of installation art, producing expansive artworks that solicit, surround and incorporate the viewer as a participant in the work. Brasiliana combines the work of postwar Brazilian artists who emerged from the Neoconcrete movement of the 1950s, such as Hélio Oiticica, Neville D’Almeida, Lygia Clark, Tunga and Cildo Meireles, with works by younger artists such as Ernesto Neto, Maria Nepomuceno, Henrique Oliviera and Dias & Riedweg, exploring the distinctly Brazilian idea of "Vivencia"--the "art of experience." This fully illustrated volume includes numerous historical photographs and documents as well as photographs of the recent works shown in an exhibition at the Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt.
