Helio Oiticica : the body of color by Mari Carmen Ramírez( Book )

13 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One the most creative artists of the twentieth century, Hélio Oiticica (1937-1980) played a key role in the Tropicalia movement in Brazil, and in the overall development of Latin American art and culture. Beginning with formal, abstract works on paper, he progressed to creating labyrinths, works that could be worn as clothing, structures hung from the ceiling, and works that featured pure, vivid pigments. The large-scale environments he created toward the end of his career opened up new sensory worlds for gallery visitors, inviting them to take off their shoes and walk in sand or share the exhibition space with live, brilliantly colored tropical parrots. Drawing on new research and including previously unseen works, this is the most extensive publication yet on this crucial Latin American artist."--Amazon

Hélio Oiticica and Neville D'Almeida : Block experiments in cosmococa--program in progress by Sabeth Buchmann( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hélio Oiticica is one of the key figures of Brazil's tropicalia movement. During his stay in new York, and together with film-maker Neville D'Almeida, Oiticia [sic] conceived Block experiments in cosmococa, program in progress (1973-74), a series of nine 'supra-sensorial' environments, each incorporating slide projections, soundtracks, cocaine powder drawings and instructions for visitors. The work is the epitome of what Oiticica called his 'quasi-cinemas', and of his desire to merge individual 'life-experience' with art. In this book, Sabeth Buchmann and Max Jorge Hinderer Cruz consider the effect the New York underground scene and Brazilian avant-garde cinema had on the Cosmococas. They draw together the influence of concrete poetry and the writings of Marshall McLuhan, Henri Bergson, and others, to present a rich analysis of the work and its experimentation with duration, its blurring of formats and languages, and its modes of spectatorship"--Back cover
Hélio Oiticica : das große Labyrinth by Hélio Oiticica( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in German and English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hélio Oiticica (1937-1980) altered the Brazilian art scene, and his works broke with accepted conventions. His oeuvre was of great importance to the breakthrough of Tropicália, the cultural movement that protested the repressions of the military regime. Experiment, proposition, participation, and environment are the key words that place Oiticica's art firmly in the 1960s and 1970s. Coming from painting, he developed into one of the protagonists of a new concept of art: he actively involved the viewer in the presentations of his multimedia works, while the works - colorful, accessible, tangible, or wearable like a piece of clothing - filled the space. This participatory kind of eventful art is related to the democratization of the concept of art, as conceived by Joseph Beuys

A invenção de Hélio Oiticica by Celso F Favaretto( Book )

2 editions published between 1992 and 2000 in Portuguese and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Oiticica often said that his pieces were nonprogrammed programs or 'programs in progress.' He represents the most fertile example of experimentalism in Brazilian art from 1950s-70s. Favaretto's approach to his work combines broad information with deep esthetic evaluations of Oiticica's paintings, environmental art, audio-visual and cinematic experiments, special structures, behavioral propositions from the delirious to conceptual lucidity, to his highly personal reinvention of 20th-century art. Details Oiticica's seminal influence on Brazilian postmodernism. Includes valuable bibliography and many illustrations in b/w and color. The most comprehensive study of the artist to date"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

Lygia Pape : magnetized space by Lygia Pape( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brazilian artist Lygia Pape was a founding member of the Neo-Concrete movement, which was dedicated to the inclusion of art into everyday life. Her early work developed out of an interest in European abstraction; however, she and her contemporaries went beyond simply adopting an international style, and started to draw on their own local situation. Neo-Concretism is often seen as the beginning of contemporary art in Brazil
Points of contact : Jim Allen, Len Lye, Hélio Oiticica( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New Zealand born Len Lye and Brazilian Hélio Oiticica are acknowledged internationally for their respective practices. These span direct film, kinetic sculpture, painting, installation and participatory performance, as well as bodies of writing that pushed language into new territory in ther efforts to convey their revolutionary views on art and life. Jim Allen, in contrast, is not as well known as he should be and whose 'environmental structures' and performances established him as the primary figure of post-object art in New Zealand in the late 1960s and 70s. Points of Contact joins a number of recent surveys that challenge the European and North American art historical paradigm, proposing and examining instead parallel and specific art historical trajectories outside these centres, in both their local and global dimensions

Hélio Oiticica : curating the Penetráveis by Stefanie Heraeus( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in German and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Penetráveis sind spektakuläre Rauminstallationen, die der brasilianische Künstler Hélio Oiticica in den 1960er und 1970er Jahren entwickelte. Sie sind Orte des Ausprobierens und werden erst durch Benutzung aktiviert. Oiticica hat damit ein Format erfunden, das bis heute immer neue Möglichkeiten für künstlerische Interventionen bietet. Was unterscheidet ein Penetrável von anderen temporären Ausstellungsformaten? Worin liegen seine kuratorischen Herausforderungen? Im ersten Teil des Buches geht es um die politischen und künstlerischen Voraussetzungen der Penetráveis. Der zweite Teil lotet ihre heutigen Möglichkeiten aus - anhand des Performance- und Filmprogramms, das im Rahmen der Oiticica-Retrospektive des MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt am Main stattgefunden hat

Cosmococa : programa in progress by Hélio Oiticica( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in Spanish and Portuguese and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comprehensive edition regarding the first 5 multimedia installations as originally envisioned by artist Oiticica (b. Brazil) and conceived in collaboration with the filmmaker D'Almeida (b. Brazil). The Cosmococa photographic series consist of single rolls of film in accordance with the artist's concept of "quasi-cinema", participative spaces that transcend the cinematographic experience and call into question the contemplative nature of the art object and designed as collective experiences making the spectator an active participant. The present edition is faithful to the artist's original concept in it's presentation of facsimiles of both his notebooks in which the works were conceptualized and Oiticica's own typewritten transcriptions along photographs of installations recently mounted at the Pinacoteca de Sao Paulo and at the Centro de Arte Hélio Oiticica in Rio de Janeiro, two multimedia installations that precede the original photographs for Cosmacoca. The book also contains critical essays by César Oiticica Filho (curator of Projeto Hélio Oiticica), Paulo Herkenhoff and Kátia Maciel
