Hélio Oiticica | Neville D’Almeida : Cosmic Shelter
Oct 12 - Mar 30 2024 - 35 days left
In the mid-1960s, the Brazilian artist Hélio Oiticica [1937-1980] began embracing joyously transgressive modes of performance, film, and installation to champion marginalized persons and their culture. Made in collaboration with the Brazilian filmmaker Neville D’Almeida [b.1941] while Oiticica was self-exiled to New York during the 1970s, the original installation series of five Bloco-Experiências in Cosmococa–Programa in Progress [Block Experiments in Cosmococa–Program in Progress, 1973], or Cosmococas, operate on many levels to transform pop and underground culture into an explosive supra-sensorial experience.
