Antropophagy and Modernity: Brazilian Art in the Fadel Collection (1908-1981)
MEXICO CITY  •  Museo Nacional de Arte  •  16 June - 28 August 2016

Antropophagy and Modernity. Brazilian Art in the Fadel Collection (1908-1981) is a large selection of works which come from the Collection Heclida y Sérgio Fadel, one of the most complete and important collections of Brazilian art ranging from the end of the XIX century to the present.

The collection has a patrimony of more than 3000 pieces that address the history of art in Brazil and its relationship with the modern and contemporary international scene.

The exhibition, which includes painting, sculpture, graphic, drawing and installation, is chronologically articulated in 3 modules, which are also subdivided in different subjects: the first module begins with the first modernism in Brazil (until the thirties decade); the second one explores the autochthonous roots and international modernization (forties and fifties decade); and the last one, reviews the modern rupture including some experiences towards the contemporary (from the sixties decade forward).

Among the precursors of modernism we find characters like Castagneto Visconti, and the first abstract pieces of Belmiro de Almeida. Modernity is represented with pieces from Vicente do Rego Monteiro, Anita Malfatti, Tarsila do Amaral, Lasar Segall, Cícero Dias, Cándido Portinari, Emiliano Di Cavalcanti, and Ismael Ney; joined by expresionst engravings of Goeldi, Art Decó influences of Antonio Gomide, pieces of John Graz, and nativist spirit sculptures of Victor Brecheret and Maria Martins.

The exhibition also includes representative pieces of geometric abstraction, concretism and neoconcretistm pieces of artists such as Waldemar Cordeiro, Lothar Charoux, Anatol Wladislaw, Lygia Pape, Hélio Oiticica, and Lygia Clark.

From the second generation of the sixties and seventies there are pieces from artists such as Mira Schendel, Sergio Camargo, Waltércio Caldas, and Wanda Pimentel, which reflect the big sociopolitical transformations that happened in Brazil.
