Since the end of the 1960s Cildo Meireles (b. 1948, Rio de Janeiro) has been developing new possibilities for the redefinition of conceptual art, based on a relationship with the viewer’s sensorial experience, the critical use of ideological and economic circulation systems, and also an ethical connection with the world, which are the foundations of the artist’s ongoing critical interpretation. Meireles’s art broadens the field of the critique of modernism made in Brazil and Latin America by artists such as Helio Oiticica, Lygia Clark and Lygia Pape in the second half of the 20th century.
The exhibition includes some works and installations never before presented, and others that are among the artist’s lesser-known creations.
