Willys de Castro: From Paintings to Objects 1953-61, the first solo exhibition in the UK for this renowned Brazilian artist, will open at Cecilia Brunson Projects on 8th October. The exhibition is an opportunity for London audiences to see works shown earlier this year to critical acclaim at the ICA, São Paulo and to discover more about de Castro, a leading figure of the Neo-Concrete Movement in Brazil.
Willys de Castro was renowned for his exploration of geometric abstraction and experimental pieces. The works in From Paintings to Objects 1953-1961 were created during the 50's and 60's and present a rare opportunity to see the transition between the artist’s paintings and sketches to his Objetos Ativos (Active Objects) – works which demand participation and interaction from the viewer.
Presented in association with Almeida e Dale Art Gallery in São Paulo, the exhibition is the latest in an ongoing series which aims to introduce London audiences to the work of major modern and contemporary Brazilian artists.
The first of many press features for Willys de Castro: From Paintings to Objects 1953-61 includes a preview by Brazilian national paper Folha de S.Paolo.
