Cildo Meireles by Cildo Meireles( Book )

13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brazilian artist Cildo Meireles, born in 1948, has made some of the most politically telling and aesthetically seductive works in recent art. An important theme in the Brazilian postwar avant-garde, from which Meireles emerged at the end of the 1960s, was the relationship between the sensual and the cerebral, the body and the mind. Meireles, now acknowledged as a key instigator of international Conceptual art, has remained true to these concerns - and to a political and ethical viewpoint formed outside the cultures of plenty. At the same time, he has become a global artist, making work that deals with issues and experiences that affect us all - whatever our country of origin. Under the repressive military regime of the late 1960s and early 1970s, which controlled the Brazilian media, Meireles found different ways of reaching the public - stamping bank notes with seditious slogans and returning them into circulation, or stenciling Coke bottles with slogans before sending them back to the bottling plant. Other works play with the sense of space or scale, varying in size from that of a finger ring to an installation covering almost 750 square feet. His installations are always designed to heighten the awareness of his audience, sometimes by inducing fear, as in "Volatile" (1980/94), which includes the presence of a naked candle and the smell of natural gas. "Babel" (2001) is a contemporary take on the myth of the tower that confounded the world's languages." "Lavishly illustrated, this volume includes 10 short thematic essays by leading scholars - including Moacir dos Anjos, Guy Brett, Okwui Enwezor, Maaretta Jaukkuri, Bartomeu Mar', Lu Menezes, Suely Rolnik, Stnia Salzstein and Lynn Zelevansky - as well as previously unpublished commentaries on each work by the artist."--Jacket
Doris Salcedo : plegaria muda by Doris Salcedo( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This exhibition catalog highlights Salcedo's most recent work, in which the artist commemorates violent deaths around the world. In particular, the work can be seen as an artistic response to the murder of some 1,500 young men by groups within the Colombian army from 2003 to 2009. Salcedo's installation Plegaria Muda, which can be translated as "silent prayer," comprises a large number of similar, roughly hewn tables, placed in pairs with one table upside down on top of another. Between the table tops is a layer of densely packed soil, and thin blades of grass force their way through the tiniest spaces in the table-tops. The wood's grey hue and smooth, dull surface contrasts with the mossy contours of the soil, and with the jewel-like delicacy of the grass. These unmarked burial grounds characterize Salcedo's talent for transforming mundane objects into eloquent works of art. Full-page illustrations capture the installation's palette and somber patterns, allowing the reader to experience the sorrow and solace of Salcedo's work. In addition, this volume includes images of Salcedo's other sculptures, including Shibboleth, the Unland, and La Casa Viuda series, along with essays by curator Isabel Carlos and other acclaimed critics."--Publisher description

Curators Farias and Dos Anjos describe the of the exhibition objective as "to affirm that the utopian dimension to art is contained within art itself, not outside or beyond it; to affirm the value of poetic intuition in the face of tamed thought that emancipates nothing, though it permeates political parties and even formal educational institutions"--Page 21. The title refers to a line by the poet Jorge de Lima (1895 - 1953) in his work "Invençao de Orfeu" (1952), used as a metaphor to address the main topics of the event: it is impossible to separate art from politics

1 edition published in 2017 in Portuguese and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout the exhibition, the boundaries between the public and the private become less clear. The collective space of the street invades residences, brothels and commercial establishments, and vice versa thus reveals some of the many expressions of the sexuality of that community, denouncing, from it, the social and racial inequalities suffered by marginalized populations in Brazil. The exhibition is part of the program project "Histórias da Sexualidade" (Stories of sexuality) that opened with the exhibitions of Toulouse-Lautrec and Wanda Pimentel

2 editions published in 2012 in Portuguese and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Project "Liberdade" (Freedom) is a collection of engraved monotypes, photographs and an installation composed of 32 barred cell doors collected from the debris of the Frei Caneca prison. From his workshop in Santa Teresa, where he can see the prison building, artist Carlos Vergara (b. Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil 1941) recorded the implosion of the prison complex and toured the rubble where he created the monotypes that served as basis for his paintings. Still on site, he photographed and videotaped the remnants of the prison, accompanied by photographer Eduardo Masini and television directors Fernanda Scalzo and Ines Vergara. From the images, Vergara created still works in 3D and a large installation, made with the cell doors. The question of freedom, present along the trajectory of the artist, is the central topic of this art project
