“Tunga: 1977-1997”, a survey of the last twenty years of the artist’s work, included video, film, performance, drawing, sculpture, and three major installations. For more than ten years Tunga, who is widely considered to be one of the most important artists of the generation of followers of the neo-concrete movement in Brazil, has been producing works of art and events that intertwine texts and objects into narratives suggesting a world in which science is delirious and dreams are logical. His work challenges notions about the relationship between art and literature and traditional notions of identity, and questions the boundaries between reality and fiction, art and life, facts and dreams. Because of its intellectual scope Tunga’s work can be considered to be representative of the utopian universalism that is pervasive in South American arts and culture. Curator: Carlos Basualdo.
