Concrete Parallels / Concretos Paralelos
A parallel between Brazilian Concrete and British Constructive and System Art September 4th - December 2nd 2012, São Paulo, Brazil
The exhibition Concrete Parallels / Concretos Paralelos is the result of a sustained programme at the Laurent Delaye Gallery over the last six years promoting and representing the British artists known as Constructivists and Systems Artists. The exhibition, which takes place at the Centro Brasileiro Britânico in São Paulo, is the first on any scale to consider the parallel practices of ‘concrete’ and ‘constructive’ art in Britain and Brazil from the 1950s to the 1970s. The British work will be the particular focus of attention here, but it will be considered in relation to Brazilian ideas and practices of the same period. There are striking similarities in the formal concerns of the art produced in both countries, and in the issues and debates prompted by it.For more information see Concrete Parallels/Concretos Paralelos
