This one-day symposium brings together an international array of scholars, artists and curators to focus on the various projects the Brazilian artist Hélio Oiticica designed during his nearly eight-year stay in New York City (1971-78). The aim of the event is to foster debate on Oiticica’s artistic production, as well as on the relation between the latter and the 1970s New York art world. Admission is free to the public; advance registration is not required.

The event is co-sponsored by Columbia University’s Department of Art History and Archaeology and the Institute for Studies on Latin American Art. The proceedings will be introduced and moderated by Alexander Alberro, Virginia Bloedel Wright Professor of Art History at Barnard College and Columbia University.
