Rio-based Waltercio Caldas has yet to gain the international recognition enjoyed by a number of Brazilian artists of his generation, such as Tunga and Cildo Meireles. Curated by Lígia Canongia, this fifty-work retrospective covering the latter half of Caldas’s career provides a broad panorama of the severe yet playful post-Conceptualism that sets him apart from the body-based practices of artists ranging from Lygia Clark and Hélio Oiticica to Ernesto Neto. With essays by ten Brazilian critics as well as excerpts from Caldas’s own writings, the catalogue offers a first monographic look at his oeuvre.
