Helio Oiticica : the body of color by Mari Carmen Ramírez ( Book )
6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 325 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

A invenção de Hélio Oiticica by Celso F Favaretto ( Book )
2 editions published between 1992 and 2000 in Portuguese and held by 27 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

Hélio Oiticica : das große Labyrinth by Hélio Oiticica ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 8 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

Hélio Oiticica and Neville d'Almeida Block-experiments in Cosmococa -- program in progress by Sabeth Buchmann ( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 3 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
