MoMA announces the first major U.S. exhibition of Tarsila do Amaral, a foundational figure in the history of modern art in Latin America.
 
Do Amaral’s art remains a vivid testimony of a pivotal chapter in Latin American modernism and was revisited by artists such as Lygia Clark, Helio Oiticica, Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil.
 
Though she is widely celebrated in her native country, outside of Brazil the general public is not familiar with do Amaral’s work, and MoMA decided to correct this. On view from February 11 until June 3, 2018, Tarsila do Amaral: Inventing Modern Art in Brazil is the first exhibition exclusively dedicated to the pioneering work of one of the greatest Brazilian artists of the 20th century.
 
On view from February 11th until June 3, Tarsila do Amaral: Inventing Modern Art in Brazil features over 100 works, including paintings, drawings, sketchbooks, photographs, and historical documents drawn from collections across Latin America, Europe, and the U.S.

现代艺术博物馆宣布了美国首次大型的阿马拉儿展览,这是拉丁美洲现代艺术史上的一个重要人物。
 
阿马拉儿的艺术是拉美现代主义的一个关键篇章,并被Lygia Clark、Helio Oiticica、Caetano Veloso和Gilberto Gil等艺术家重新审视。
 
虽然阿马拉儿在她的祖国广为人知,但除了巴西,一般公众并不熟悉她的工作,因此MoMA决定纠正这一点。从2011年2月11日至2018年6月3日,在巴西举办的“阿马拉儿:在巴西创造现代艺术”展览,是首个专门介绍20世纪最伟大的巴西艺术家之一的开创性作品的展览。
 
从2月11日至6月3日,阿马拉儿在巴西创作了100多幅作品,包括绘画、素描、写生、摄影,以及拉丁美洲、欧洲和美国收藏的历史文献。
