From January 16th (opening to the public at 20.00) to April 22nd 2018, MAM – Museu de Arte Moderna de São Paulo (The Museum of Modern Art of São Paulo), will host the exhibition Oito décadas de abstração informal (Eight decades of informal abstraction), bringing together 83 works by celebrated artists who adopted the abstract style without abandoning artistic expressiveness in their painterly and sculptural gestures. In combining two of the most significant Brazilian collections, the permanence and potency of informal abstraction over the last 80 years is revealed. The show brings together 36 works from the Instituto Casa Roberto Marinho and 47 from MAM. The works cover the period from the end of the 1940s up to the year 2012.
