Library Shelf Location 18.SCHE
Publication Date 2015

Mira Schendel (1919–1988) is one of Latin America’s most significant and prolific post-war ­artists who created a vast and unique oeuvre that addressed themes of existence, language and meaning and com­prised paintings, drawings and sculptures. Working from the artist’s archive, the book features a ­selection of monotypes, a central daily practice in Schendel’s artistic career. Focused on the ideas of ­writing, invisibility and ephemera, the facsimiles of Schendel’s delicate monotypes are printed on India paper, fully engaged in the Brazilian artist’s aesthetic. Through the work leads a concise text by Taisa Palhares – from Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo – who acted as a co-curator of the Schendel retrospective that took place at Tate Modern from September 2013 to January 2014.
