Cecilia Brunson Projects and Almeida & Dale Art Gallery are delighted to announce a presentation of works by the acclaimed Brazilian artist Luiz Sacilotto (1924-2003). The exhibition is curated by Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro and Denise Mattar.
The works in this exhibition come from the later period in Sacilotto’s career when in 1974, after a decade-long hiatus following the establishment of the military dictatorship in Brazil, he finally returned to his studio. The show unites the artist’s large-scale paintings with smaller gouache studies demonstrating how the artist played with spacial and colour possibilities on paper before committing them to canvas.
A publication with essays from Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro and Pia Gottschaller will be published in due course.
Frieze Week BrunchFriday October 15 11.30am to 1.30pm 2G Royal Oak Yard, SE1 3GD Join Gabriel Pérez-Barreiro and Pia Gottschaller while they discuss Luiz Sacilotto work, positioning it against the backdrop of post war Brazilian history in the 1970s and 1980s. As part of this conversation, Gabriel and Pia will consider how Sacilotto’s practise stands alongside artists such as Bridget Riley and Victor Vasarely in the international development of Op Art.
