HÉLIO OITICICA: WAITING FOR THE INTERNAL SUN
This autumn, De La Warr Pavilion will present Hélio Oiticica: Waiting for the internal sun, the first major presentation of the artist’s work in a UK public institution for over 15 years.
Hélio Oiticica (1937-1980) is widely regarded as one of Brazil’s most prominent artists of the twentieth century and a touchstone for much contemporary art made since the 1960s. Through freewheeling, participatory artworks – cinematic installations, immersive environments, interactive objects and abstract paintings – Oiticica challenges us to engage with our surroundings in new and unexpected ways, stimulating our senses, emotions and physical bodies.
