Beatriz Milhazes: Mistura Sagrada (Hardcover)
New works from the celebrated Brazilian virtuoso of joyously chromatic abstraction
Published in conjunction with the Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes' (born 1960) first solo exhibition at Pace since she joined the gallery in 2020, this book spotlights 10 vibrant, large-scale paintings she created during pandemic quarantine, as well as an immersive multimedia installation titled Gamboa III (2020), which incorporates materials found in carnival props. Including additional images of Milhazes' previous sculptural works and new texts that illuminate her highly generative practice, the publication immerses readers in the artist's colorful, spiritual world. An essay by curator Mark Godfrey explores Milhazes' art as it relates to the terms "landscape" and "logo," "structure" and "spontaneity" and "surface" and "spirituality"; and a conversation between Milhazes and fellow artist Polly Apfelbaum delves into Milhazes' emergence within the international art scene and her relationship with her practice today.
