[PRE-ORDER] The Museu de Arte de São Paulo Assis Chateaubriand will inaugurate its yearlong curatorial focus on the histories of dance with an exhibition that considers how the late Brazilian artist Hélio Oiticica conceptually incorporated samba in his work. Hélio Oiticica: Dance in My Experience will present photographs, writings, videos and ephemera tied to the artist’s Parangolé series, which Oiticica described as “a search for the infinite dimension of colour as it relates to structure, space and time”. Dance in My Experience traces the genealogy of this theme within the artist’s oeuvre, identifying rhythmic, choreographic and dance elements throughout his trajectory, from his first Metaesquemas through the Spatial Reliefs, Nuclei and Bólides, culminating in the Parangolés. Hélio Oiticica (b. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil 1937-80), considered one of the most profound and adventurous artists of our times.
