MASP, in partnership with the Casa Roberto Marinho, is organizing a large exhibition dedicated to the oeuvre of Maria Martins (Campanha, MG, 1894 — Rio de Janeiro, 1973). This project seeks to revisit the work of one of the most instigating artists of Brazilian modernism and, thus, reposition her production in the broader context of Brazilian, Latin American and international modernism. Martins was known for her bronze engravings and sculptures that represent hybrid and mythological figures. Due to her marriage to the ambassador Carlos Martins, the artist built a large part of her career outside Brazil, having lived in New York in the 1940s, when she was part of the city’s group of surrealists. The anthropomorphic and organic shapes of her work, as well as her unique approach to desire and eroticism from a feminine perspective, are important contributions to surrealist sensibilities and their...developments beyond the United States and Europe. The show will highlight Martins’ central and active role in the group of international surrealists, contradicting the glamourous narratives about the artist's personal and artistic involvement with Marcel Duchamp. The project will seek to critically analyze the unique interpretation of Amazonian mythologies and visualities from the beginning of her career to the artist’s unique approach to female desire and eroticism in her works.
