The work of Hélio Oiticica (1937–1980), which in recent years has been discovered and reassessed outside Brazil, represents one of the most significant achievements of the twentieth century. The exhibition Hélio Oiticica — museu é o mundo constitutes the broadest possible retrospective of the artist, featuring 117 works, some of which are displayed in the outdoor spaces of the Museu Coleção Berardo.
In 1955, Hélio Oiticica started out on a remarkable journey. Taking neo-concrete abstraction as a starting point, he aimed to explore new ways of moving painting away from the canvas, creating devices intended to immerse the spectator, such as the Penetrables, or the Parangolés, which could be worn.
