The unique role played by women in the development of modern and contemporary art in Brazil is explored in a major exhibition at Cecilia Brunson Projects. Opening 4 June, The Women’s Century — Female Perspectives in Brazilian Art
brings together works by artists from different generations and spanning several movements and styles.
The selection of works, curated by Kiki Mazzucchelli, includes Tarsila do Amaral (1886-1973), Eleonore Koch (1926-2018), Lygia Pape (1927-2004), Lygia Clark (1920-1988), Miriam Inez da Silva (1937-1996), Beatriz Milhazes (b. 1960) and Adriana Varejão (b. 1964).
Says Cecilia Brunson: 'Spanning almost a century, The Women's Century — Female Perspectives in Brazilian Art brings together for the first time in the UK a small but extraordinary significant group of works by some of the women who played a pivotal role in the development of modern and contemporary art in Brazil, alongside contemporary artists who are working today, each of whom is extending that legacy with work that is relevant to Brazilian art today.'
