Thematic Visit – The Neo-Concrete Movement
The artistic and literary movement known as Neo-Concretism emerged in the late 1950s in Rio de Janeiro, opposing the Concretist Movement of the city of São Paulo. Neo-concretists criticized the excess of dogmatism and rationalism expressed by Concretism, and perceived art in a more subjective and sensitive way. Among the various artists who participated in the Neoconcretist Manifesto, Inhotim features works by Lygia Clark, Lygia Pape and Amílcar de Castro. This thematic visit reflects on the importance of this movement, considered by many as a turning point in Brazilian art for influencing a considerable number of artists.
When: February 25 and 26.
Hour: 10:30 a.m.

Public: all ages (registration starts at 10 a.m. 25 participants per day limit)
