Brazilian art historian, curator and writer Paulo Venancio Filho (Professor of Art History, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro) will present his research on the artist Hélio Oiticica, whose work is currently on show at the Adam Art Gallery in the exhibition Points of Contact: Jim Allen, Len Lye and Hélio Oiticica (organised and toured by the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery).

His lecture will summarise Oiticica’s role in the Brazilian artistic context of the late 1950s and 1960s, which saw him synthesising the legacy of modernism with pioneering avant-garde experiment, which he expanded in his brief stay in London that led to the breakthrough exhibition at the Whitechapel Art Gallery in 1969 and the late projects and experiments made in his 1970-1978 period in New York.

Paulo Venancio Filho’s visit to New Zealand is supported by the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro; Adam Art Gallery, Victoria University of Wellington; the National Institute of Arts and Industry, University of Auckland, and the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, New Plymouth.
