Focusing on Brazilian art from the late 1950's to present days, the Instituto Tomie Ohtake, (Sao Paulo), published a major editorial project of four volumes set that document in detail the events related to 4 exhibitions, presented into homonyms books. Organized between 2006 and 2007, these events brought together more than 350 artists from different artistic moments in Brazil, in a period marked by a sophisticated dialogue between the arts with other artistic movements in vogue in the country.
The 1st volume documents the exhibition "Brushstroke: painting and method, the projections from the 1950's" undertaken in the year 2006 by Tomie Ohtake in Sao Paulo. The event presented the proposals of the Brazilian solidify art created in the years 1950 and represented in the following decade, through the work of some of its most prominent artists. The event also showed that the years 1950 and 1960 marked the emergence and practice of abstract art in Brazil. This radical transformation in Brazilian modernity resulted from a new awareness of painting as a fact, autonomous art that broke with the modernist nationalism and figuration movements and produced a broad repertoire of perspectives, concepts and innovative practices. Thus, names like Abraham Palatnik, Aldo Bonadei, Alfredo Volpi, Almir Mavignier, Aluísio Carvão, Antonio Bandeira, Antônio Maluf, Decius Vieira, Flavio-Shiró, Hélio Oiticica, Iberê Camargo, Ione Saldanha and Ivan Serpa were present.
