The luminous, revelatory landscapes of the pioneering Latin American modernist, in a deluxe production

Featuring a tip-on cover images and paper changes throughout, Cannibalizing Modernism is the first comprehensive English-language catalog on the Brazilian painter Tarsila do Amaral (1886–1973), a key figure in Latin American modernism.

After studying with Fernand Léger and André Lhote in Paris, Tarsila—as she is widely known in Brazil—cannibalized modern European references to create a unique style, with the use of caipira (rural Brazilian) colors and representations of local characters and scenes. Much of her work was made in dialogue with two leading modernist thinkers of her time, Mário de Andrade and Oswald de Andrade. Her work also parallels the development of Oswald de Andrade's antropofagia, a key concept in 20th-century Latin American thought, through which intellectuals of the tropics would cannibalize European cultural references, while also bringing indigenous, Afro-Atlantic and local elements into their work.

Cannibalizing Modernism reproduces 233 paintings alongside documents and photographs.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

New York Times

Roberta Smith

In this lavishly illustrated, multivoiced and comprehensive catalog, some dozen curators, critics and writers insistently create more space between the work of this singular and singularly Brazilian artist and the European influences ...they approach her work from many angles — topography, primitivism, popular culture and even contemporary performance art — in ways both precise and expansive.

Tarsila do Amaral, cannibal of Modernism

Tarsila do Amaral, cannibal of Modernism

There is so much to love about this new monograph on the underrecognized Brazilian Modernist Tarsila do Amaral, we hardly know where to begin. First, of course, is the title: Cannibalizing Modernism. Second, please note the tipped-on images on both front and back covers. Next, let us acknowledge the fact that the publisher, MASP, has printed on not one, but several very nice papers. There is also the fact that Tarsila, as the artist is known in her home country, dared to blend Parisian Modernism, as ingested during her years studying with André Lhote, Albert Gleizes and Fernand Léger, with "the art of our caipiras (people from the countryside)." Finally, there is the work itself. Colorful, weird, uninhibited, original, magical. Featured image is "Abaporu" (meaning, "the man who eats), painted in 1928 for the artist's husband, Oswald de Andrade, who was inspired by it to write the Manifesto of Anthropophagy, arguing for the supremacy of Brazilian art and culture specifically because it derived from the "cannibalism" of outside influences. continue to blog

'Tarsila do Amaral: Cannibalizing Modernism' is one of Roberta Smith's Best Art Books of 2019 for the NY Times

Congratulations MASP, publisher of Tarsila do Amaral: Cannibalizing Modernism, one of Roberta Smith's Best Art Books of 2019 for the New York Times. "In this lavishly illustrated, multivoiced and comprehensive catalog, some dozen curators, critics and writers insistently create more space between the work of this singular and singularly Brazilian artist and the European influences she absorbed in Paris in the early 1920s," Smith writes. "Factoring in Tarsila’s upper-class origins (she was always called by her first name) and Brazil’s social turmoil, they approach her work from many angles—topography, primitivism, popular culture and even contemporary performance art—in ways both precise and expansive." Featured image is "Urutu Viper (Urutu)" (1928). continue to blog
