Hélio Oiticica

Hélio Oiticica : The Body of Colour
LONDON  •  Tate Modern  •  Ongoing
This exhibition devoted to Brazilian artist Hélio Oiticica (1937-1980) explores the dimension of colour as a vital focus of his work, from his early career onwards. It includes several related series of works which unfold in sequence, showing the conceptual and technical processes that led to the artist's liberation of colour from the twodimensional realm of painting out into space, to be walked around and through, looked into, manipulated, inhabited and experienced. Oiticica emerged as an artist during a period of optimism in Brazil, before the utopian dream of a modern society was thwarted by the oppressive military regime in the 1960s.
