A tour of Hélio Oiticica by Ann Gallagher

Ann Gallagher, the curator of Hélio Oiticica at Lisson Gallery (London, 26 April – 25 June 2022) gives a narrated tour of parts of the exhibition, commenting on his use of colour, his liberation from two dimensions and the addition of organic materials.

"Hélio Oiticica’s remarkable artistic experiments took place during a period of around only twenty-five years, but his influence has extended far beyond that timescale to demonstrate a prescience for the subsequent development of international contemporary art. The artist who so comprehensively embodied a belief that art and life were capable of being fully intertwined, left to posterity not only memories of an extraordinary life lived fully, collaboratively and internationally, but also a wealth of significant artworks, writings, plans, sketches and instructions that have enabled further decades of wider discovery and dissemination."
