Leonilson: Drawn

1975–1993

Edited with text by Krist Gruijthuijsen, Louisa Elderton. Text by Eduardo Brandão & Jan Fjeld, Leda Catunda, Albet Hien, Yuji Kawasima, Lisette Lagnado, Ivo Mesquita, Adriano Pedrosa.

From an intimate figuration to tender, melancholic embroidery: the brief but brilliant career of Leonilson in Europe and Brazil

Leonilson (1957–93), also known as José Leonilson, emerged as a seminal figure of the Brazilian contemporary art world in the 1980s. He traveled extensively throughout Europe, where his paintings, drawings and installations were featured in solo and group shows in France, Germany, Italy, and Spain, alongside the numerous exhibitions held in Brazil. In 1991, the artist tested positive for HIV. This diagnosis compelled a decisive shift in his career, as Leonilson began to develop his intimate embroideries, a practice he continued until his death in 1993 at the age of 36.

Drawn: 1975–1993 is the first comprehensive retrospective of Leonilson’s work in Europe and features more than 150 works produced between 1975 and 1993.
