Milton Machado: Cabeca [Head]

Milton Machado: Cabeca [Head]
RIO DE JANEIRO  •  Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil  •  Ongoing
Milton Machado's 45-year career with a retrospective exhibition brings together more than 100 works of drawing, painting, photography, video, sculpture and installation, produced between 1969 and 2014 – many of which never shown in Rio.

Milton Machado (born 1947, Rio de Janeiro) belongs to a generation of Brazilian artists whose careers began in the 1970s, with productions characterized by conceptual investigation and experimentation. His own production, initiated in that period and developed over the following decades with the exploration of diverse media and genres, can be said to constitute a 'theory' on the production of art, uniting conceptual universality and the singularity of authorial discourse, the political and the poetic dimensions. His multidisciplinary background – his training as an architect with a master degree in urban planning and a PhD in Fine Art.

CABEÇA [Head] include relevant works, such as a new version of the sculpture Módulo de Destruicão [Module of Destruction] (1990-2010-2014), part of the work-in-progress História do Futuro [History of the Future] (1978– ).

Another highlight is the series Conspiracão Arquitetura [Conspiracy Architecture], of drawings related to issues of architecture and urban design, shown for the first time at Galeria Sergio Milliet, Rio de Janeiro, in 1981.
