SENSITIVE GEOMETRIES: BRAZIL 1950S-1980S. Hauser & Wirth, London, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 16 pp. 19 x 19 cm. ISBN 9783952363034 In English.
Publisher's description: This facsimile of the 1959 exhibition catalog for the first Neo-Concrete exhibition held at the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro, Sensitive Geometries brings together the work of 12 artists living in Brazil in the 1950s. Building on developments in architecture in the 1930s, the work of the Concrete and Neo-Concrete artists adopted a Constructivist language to investigate the era's industrial growth and changing sociopolitical currents. Two pamphlets -- a diagram of the intellectual genesis and art historical lineage of the Concrete art movement and a reprint of Ferreira Gullar's Neo-Concrete manifesto (1959) -- and 12 artist cards with brief biographies on each artist are slipcased in this informative package. Foreword from exhibition organizer Olivier Renaud-Clement and essay by art historian Claudia Saldanha, director of the Escola de Artes Visuais do Parque Lage.
