Possibilities of the Object
Paulo Venacio Filho
Publisher Fruitmarket Gallery
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.
