Mira Schendel, Sérgio Camargo, and Willys de Castro

Centro Cultural Banco Do Brasil
Rua Primeiro de Março, 66 - Centro
March 15–May 28, 2000

Curated by art historian and critic Ronaldo Brito, this monumental exhibition traces the formal affinities among and strategies of Brazilian artists Mira Schendel, Sérgio Camargo, and Willys de Castro over a nearly thirty-year period. Although, among the three, Castro was the sole member of the Neo-concrete movement, they all forged intimate links with its theoretical and formal tenets, which are reflected in their shared concerns: phenomenology, the complexities of linear and geometric structure, and the incorporation of time in the apprehension of the work. A catalogue with essays by Brito, Joäo Massao, Cristina Bach, and Roberto Concheru is planned.
