the malmö eperience 18.02.2006 – 01.05.2006 at malmö konsthall, sweden http://www.konsthall.malmo.se/o.o.i.s/2741 ernesto neto is considered one of the absolute leaders of brazil’s contemporary art scene. his inspiration comes partly from brazilian neo-concretism. at the end of the 1950s and beginning of the 60s the movement’s best-known proponents, lygia clarc and hélio oiticica, rejected modernism’s ideas of autonomous geometric abstraction. instead, they wanted to equate art with living organisms in a kind of organic architecture, and invite the viewer to be an active participant.
