Tarsila do Amaral: Cannibalizing modernism

5.4-28.7.2019

Centered on the work of Tarsila do Amaral (Capivari, São Paulo, Brazil, 1886 – São Paulo, Brazil, 1973), the exhibition of around 120 works proposes a new approach to her oeuvre, usually presented as part of European modernist tradition. Without overlooking the canonical modernist and formal aspects of her work, the project attempts to emphasize its characters, themes and narratives, especially with regard to social, political, race and class issues, as well as highlighting her forays into popular and vernacular art.

Tarsila do Amaral: Cannibalizing modernism is curated by Fernando Oliva, curator at MASP.
