Tropicalia @ MAM

The Museum of Modern Art, MAM, in Rio de Janeiro just debuted it's new presentation "Tropicalia-Uma Revolucao Na Cultura Brasileira" and features works by avant-garde Brazilian artists of the 60's Helio Oiticica, Lygia Clark and Glauber Rocha to name a few. It covers the time between 1967-1972, when the Tropicalismo movement bloomed, and includes samples of paintings, sculptures, music, photography, theatre, graphic arts and fashions of the period. There are several TV sets playing period movies and live performances by the likes of Gilberto Gil and Caetano Veloso. Part of this show had travelled to museums in Chicago, NYC, London and Berlin before arriving in Rio, which added several more pieces to the exhibit to complete the full Tropicalismo view. The show extends until September 3oTH 2007.
