On Aspects of Tropicalism
This symposium brings together distinguished speakers to talk about Helio Oiticica in connection with Tropicalism, an influential Brazilian art movement of the 1960s. Tropicalism was inspired by the early formulations of such Brazilian modernists as poet Oswaldo de Andrade and developed through the works of Oiticica and the syncretic music of Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, among others. Join us for this fascinating discussion about Oiticica's role in shaping Brazil's art scene and pioneering this movement of great social and political consequence.
