Coinciding with the exhibition on Cildo Meireles, the Study Center presents a wide selection of documents related to contemporary art in Brazil, that brings together documents coming mostly out of the Center’s own holdings. For this presentation, documents have been grouped depending on their typology and contents. Thus, besides a selection devoted to Cildo Meireles, which includes not only bibliography on his work but also magazine Malasartes, founded by Meireles, of which only three numbers came out (between September 1975 and June 1976), the public will find significant books in relation to the movement of Brazilian concrete poetry, and also a wide selection of catalogues of individual and collective exhibitions, publications linked to the art biennials in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo and also magazines, special books, posters and other ephemeral materials that illustrate the artistic scene in Brazil throughout the last decades.
