Finally we have met on the video of the exhibition of Cildo Meireles in the MACBA. Here the commissioner of the sample, Bartomeu Marí introduces us in a trip across the exposed works and the language of this Brazilian artist.
Two extremely important videos for those that approach for the first time the work of Meireles, whose senses point much deeper than to the visual thing, explaining the complexity of skills and concepts that include his production.
Since you know, the exhibition that we can see in these days in the MACBA is dedicated to the work of Cildo Meireles, one of the most important contemporary Brazilian artists.
In this one interview, Meireles speaks to us about his conception of the art and the creative process that hides behind every piece. For Meireles from the beginning every idea can begin from zero and take a structure, language and different matter, as it is showed by the work MeshesofFredom of 1976-77, which structurally seems very classic, but which to derivative in a project started in every new exhibition and that participant does to the public, who believes the new forks network and this way the form of the work.

On February 11 the exhibition Cildo Meireles is inaugurated in the Contemporary Art museum of Barcelona. Without retrospective fortitudes, this proposal is an approach to the complexity of the creative world of the Brazilian artist, winning of the Award Velázquez to the Plastic Arts 2008.
What will we be able to see? The sample consists of works selected in facilities of big format, drawings and objects realized between 1967 and 2008.
I like few artists as entirely as Cildo Meireles, who over his (questioned) political past, will enter on October 14 Tate Modern with a retrospective that puts it in the place that should be long ago.
What will we be able to see? The exhibition does a trip for the fundamental works of the Brazilian artist, spending from facilities of small and big format up to the series Insertions in circuits idelógicos, 1970.
