Artur Barrio Reflexion...(S)

[Visual Arts & Performance]

This Portuguese-born, Rio-based artist secured his place in Brazil’s creative pantheon as a member of the ‘neo-concrete’ movement in the 1960s, when the country was under military rule. He was one of the first to experiment with monumental installations marked by chaos and disorder. Originally conceived for the alcove of the Tokyo Palace, Réflexion...(S) emits a strong whiff of ground coffee and bread, and the lighting changes at various times of the day.
