Durham Press artist Beatriz Milhazes’s new solo show opened at Malba – Fundación Costantini in Buenos Aires, on the 11th of September. The exhibition, Panamericano: Beatriz Milhazes – Paintings 1999–2012, is a selection of roughly thirty recent paintings from private and public collections presented in three large galleries on the second floor. The show is remarkable, well worth the visit if you happen to be in Buenos Aires! Here are some snapshots from my visit. She also made a great bead installation in the hall leading into the show.
The title of the exhibition, Panamericano, alludes to the to-and-fro between North and South, a central theme in Milhazes’ work. Milhazes is recognized as one of Brazil’s most important contemporary artists.
