Beatriz Miliazes. Avenida Paulista

Museum of Art of São Paulo (MASP) hosts an exhibition “Beatriz Miliazes. Avenida Paulista ".

The exhibition features over 170 works created since 1989, a turning point in the artist's career. It was in that year that Beatrice developed what she calls mono-transfer: in it, she draws on a sheet of transparent plastic and then pastes or transfers the painted and dry element onto the canvas. This is a truly unique opportunity to discover the varied, complex, multifaceted and unique works of Beatrice Milliases, one of the most significant artists on the Brazilian and international scene in the 21st century.

This is the largest exhibition dedicated to the work of Beatrice Milhazes (Rio de Janeiro, 1960), the central artist of Brazilian contemporary art, in the panorama of international painting and in the recent history of abstraction. Milyazesh works with a complex repertoire of images associated with various motives, origins and sources, mainly in painting, engraving and collages, but also in drawing, sculpture, books and textiles. Hesitating between abstraction and figuration, geometry and free form, her compositions are complex, dense, multicolored and literally full of layers - colors, paints, paper and meanings.
