56 min 55 sec ago The Art Institute of Chicago COMING SOON—Hélio Oiticica: To Organize Delirium
Explore the relentlessly innovative works of Brazilian artist Hélio Oiticica, arguably the most influential Latin American artist of the post–World War II period.
Oiticica’s adventurous works on paper paved the way for increasingly immersive large-scale installations that inspired Tropicália, a powerful movement in all the arts and a political position against both the right’s conservatism and the left’s desire for a purely Brazilian art. Throughout his brief but energetic career, Oiticica seamlessly melded formal and social concerns in his art, seeking to be internationally relevant and, at the same time, specifically Brazilian.
