Pha´don, Sep 30, 1999 - Art - 160 pages
One of the pioneers of installation art in the 1960s, Brazilian Cildo Meireles has influenced generations of international artists working in this medium. Best known for his often dramatic and politically-charged walk-in environments which incorporate sound, smell and touch, Meireles requires the viewer's full-body involvement in his work. His three-dimensional art envelops the viewer and offers an alternative -- visual, political and sensual -- to the less-than-perfect world around us. This is the most important monograph available on this innovative figure and served as the catalogue for a retrospective exhibition at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York, in 1999, touring North and South America throughout 2000.
