Hélio Oiticica: To Organize Delirium is the first full-scale retrospective in the United States of the Brazilian artist’s work. One of the most influential artists of the twentieth century, Oiticica’s early work began with formal, geometric investigations in painting and drawing and soon moved into large scale "spatial reliefs," exploding his two-dimensional works into three-dimensional compositions. For the artist, these works were completed only when viewers interacted with them. That aim reached fruition as his career advanced and his work took on an increasingly immersive nature, transforming the viewer from a spectator to an active participant. The exhibition will include some of these large scale installations, including Tropicalia and Eden. Oiticica spent a formative time in New York in the 1970s, engaging with the city and other artists, and extended his work into filmmaking, slide show environments, and concrete poetry before returning to Brazil. In addition to viewing original works on display, visitors will be invited to wear and manipulate exhibition copies of the artist’s interactive works.
Hélio Oiticica: To Organize Delirium is curated by Lynn Zelevansky, The Henry J. Heinz II Director, Carnegie Museum of Art; Elisabeth Sussman, Curator and Sondra Gilman Curator of Photography, Whitney Museum of American Art; James Rondeau, President and Eloise W. Martin Director, The Art Institute of Chicago; and Donna De Salvo, Deputy Director for International Initiatives and Senior Curator, Whitney Museum of American Art; with Anna Katherine Brodbeck, associate curator, Carnegie Museum of Art.

BAM Howard Gilman Opera House
30 Lafayette Ave, Brooklyn


Co-presented with BAM

Music legend Tom Zé, the avant-garde conscience of Brazil’s 1960’s Tropicália movement, presents an evening of samba and bossa nova reimagined as only he can. A dauntless innovator whose records made beguiling experimental bedfellows of rock, folk, electronic music, and found sounds, Zé fell into obscurity until the 1990’s, when he was rediscovered and signed as the rst artist on David Byrne’s Luaka Bop label. At BAM, he resumes his place in Brazil’s musical firmament, exuberantly channeling the spirit of Salvador and São Paulo with new and old songs alike.

This concert is presented as part of WMI’s Masters of Brazilian Music Series.
