About:
The Blanton Museum of Art and the Fundação Iberê Camargo (Brazil) are co-organizing The Nearest Air: A Survey of Works by Waltercio Caldas, the first comprehensive career survey of the artis. This exhibition will be the most extensive presentation of one of Brazil’s leading contemporary artists, featuring works from the 1960s through the present. The exhibition and publication will investigate Caldas’ key role in Brazilian art history and his importance as an international contemporary artist. Caldas’ rigorous aesthetic and subtle poetic sensibility can be seen as a continuation of the formal precision of artists such as Constantin Brancusi and the conceptual sophistication of influential artists as Marcel Duchamp. The exhibition will bring to light how divergent histories converge in and situate Caldas’ work as a critical point of encounter between Brazilian and international narratives establishing a larger and richer history of art.

* The Nearest Air: A Survey of Works by Waltercio Caldas > Ends January 12, 2014
