  • Daniel Senise

    Museu de Arte Moderna
    Av Infante Dom Henrique 85 Parque do Flamengo
    May 1–August 1, 2000

    Daniel Senise is widely considered the chief figure of the Brazilian “Geração Oitenta,” or “Eighties Generation,” which, like its German, Italian, and American counterparts, proposed a return to painting (read neo-Expressionism). Organized by Museu de Arte Moderna chief curator Agnaldo Farias, this large-scale retrospective brings together a wide range of Senise's work, from the melancholy, painterly canvases of the '80s to his more Conceptual experiments of the '90s. An extensive volume with essays by Farias and Cecilia Almeida Salles will be published on the occasion of the exhibition.
