The MACBA presents the work of Brazilian artist Cildo Meireles (Rio de Janeiro, 1948) within an exhibition that brings together drawings, objects and installations created between 1967 and 2008.

Somewhere between Neo-Concretism and Brazilian Conceptual art, the work of Cildo Meireles is characterised by connections between the political and the poetic, the mind and the body, accumulation and reduction. All of this together with an ongoing reflection on the limits of art and its relation to other disciplines, such as science, economy and perception.

In addition, to coincide with the exhibition Cildo Meireles, the MACBA’s Study centre presents a selection of documents that illustrate Brazil's artistic scene in recent decades, under the title Reading Room 1: Brazil.
