PROCESS AND FORM IN BRAZILIAN ART

BUILDING MATERIAL—PROCESS AND FORM IN BRAZILIAN ART—the PST: LA/LA exhibition at Hauser & Wirth Los Angeles—surveys “three generations of artists, emphasizing affinities between the materials, processes, and forms they have embraced since the Concrete and Neo-Concrete movements of the 1950s and 1960s,” with a particular focus on the ground-breaking work of Geraldo de Barros (1923 – 1998), artist, photographer, industrial designer, and central figure “in the evolution of Brazilian art from mid-20th century onward.”*

 

BUILDING MATERIAL—PROCESS AND FORM IN BRAZILIAN ART, through October 18.

HAUSER & WIRTH, 901 East 3rd Street, downtown Los Angeles.
