Cildo Meireles.

NEW MUSEUM OF CONTEMPORARY ART

Brazilian Conceptual pioneer Cildo Meireles produced an art that taps into and circulates through the "ideological circuits" of daily life (in 1970, for example, he printed slogans on cruzeiro notes). Since the '80s he has focused on room-scale environments that disorient and refocus everyday perception. His first New York retrospective, curated by the New Museum's Dan Cameron and Gerardo Mosquera, brings together seven installations, including one specifically made for the show, and thirteen sculptures. The catalogue boasts essays by Cameron and Paulo Herkenhoff, who recently signed on at MoMA. Nov. 19, 1999-Mar. 5, 2000; travels to Museu de Arte Moderna, Sao Paulo, July 23-Aug. 1, 2000; Museu de Arte Moderna, Rio de Janeiro, Oct. 5-Dec. 3, 2000.
