Exhibition of material from the archive of Antonio Dias (1944, Campina Grande, Brazil– 2018, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) held at the Instituto de Arte Contemporânea.
Living in Rio de Janeiro from 1957 onward, the artist’s vast production played a fundamental role for the Brazilian new figuration movement in the 1960s. From the end of that decade onward, he had an intense international experience and dialogue with arte povera, conceptual art and the transavantgarde. His notebooks, notes and designs offer a new entrance to his always restless thoughts. Dias presented his works in more than 100 solo and group shows at many important venues worldwide. He participated in various biennials, including the 16th, 22nd, 24th, 29th and 33rd editions of the Bienal de São Paulo, the 1st and 5th editions of the Bienal do Mercosul (1997, 2005) and the 4th and 8th editions of the Paris Biennale (1965 and 1973).
