Mira Schendel

One of Latin America's most important post-war artists, Mira Schendel and her contemporaries reinvented the language of European Modernism in Brazil. Bringing together 250 paintings, prints and sculptures, this exhibition will represent works from across her entire career, including some works which have never before been exhibited.
