LONDON.- Richard Saltoun Gallery presents the first solo exhibition in London of Brazilian artist Paulo Bruscky (b.1949, Recife, Brazil), one of Brazil’s most important contemporary artists. The exhibition at the gallery follows his recent survey at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris and his inclusion in Viva arte viva at the 2017 Venice Biennale.

A pioneer of Mail art in Brazil in the 60s, associated with Fluxus in the 70s, and influenced by the work of pioneers of the avant-garde such as Marcel Duchamp and John Cage; Bruscky’s practice resists straightforward classifications, boldly combining visual and literary language to voice his artistic identity and position within society. Since the late 60s, Bruscky has committed to an experimental approach which has combined his own performance and radical public interventions, with conceptual strategies of documentation and communication through collage, sculpture, artist books, “poetic objects”, classified and mail artworks, visual music and poetry.

Investigating the role of new media in art, Bruscky has developed a humorous, yet harshly critical commentary of local and international culture and politics. In 1982 he was awarded the prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship in New York, where he worked for one year. Here, he developed some of his most important experimental works using Xerox machines, and employed the use of photocopies, blueprints, artist stamps and postal envelopes as a strategy to blur the boundaries of art, poetry and politics.

The exhibition at Richard Saltoun Gallery will be a unique opportunity to explore Bruscky’s radical language, through a major display of over 200 works, crossing all media, created between the late 1960s up until today.

Paulo Bruscky was born in 1949 in Recife, where he lives and works. He was featured four times in the São Paulo Biennal (1981, 1989, 2004 and 2010) and in the 10th Havana Biennial, Cuba (2009). His works are included in the collections of MoMA; Guggenheim Museum; Tate Gallery; Museu de Arte Moderna de São Paulo; Stedelijk Museum, among others.
