  • Nelson Felix

    Paço Imperial

    March 16–May 22, 2005

    Curated by Glória Ferreira

    Since the early ’80s, Nelson Felix has been making sculptures and installations replete with formal intelligence, conceptual concerns, bodily references, and oblique narratives—they’re typically Brazilian, at its very best. For this show, Felix has taken up the challenge of completing what he regards as three (until now) “incomplete trilogies” related to “bodily voids,” time, and the form and concept of the cross. The exhibition, organized in close collaboration with the artist, includes some fourteen large-scale works encompassing installation, sculpture, drawing, and photography from 1986 to the present. A catalogue features six years of interviews between Felix and Ferreira. Travels to the Museu de Arte Moderna, São Paulo, June 12–Aug. 16.
