São Paulo: Projeto Leonilson, 2017. b/w and color plates, wrps. Slipcase. Item #109452
Composed of three volumes and 3,400 records comprising works, studies, and projects made by Leonilson, presented in chronological order. This bilingual publication (Portuguese/English) contains technical and critical texts, as well as lists of exhibitions, events, and bibliographical references. The project took 24 years to get ready that bega shortly after the artist's death. Considering that Leonilson made his first individual exhibition in 1981, there were 12 years of uninterrupted work, which gives an average of 300 works per year, one per day, between drawings, paintings and embroideries, as well as scenarios and costumes. Leonilson, who was close to the Generation 80 artists, was often aligned with the names that participated in the historic Lage Park exhibition in 1984. But he ran veered away. His artistic kinship is with Bishop of the Rosary, especially because of the embroideries and the autobiographical references in the work, as well as Lygia Clark, Louise Bourgeois and Eva Hesse.
