Descripción de la Exposición
Bortolami is pleased to announce a two-person exhibition with works by Roberto Burle Marx and Santídio Pereira, organized by Ricardo Kugelmas, founder of auroras, São Paulo, in The Upstairs. Though the two Brazilian artists are from different generations, they find commonality creating work that celebrates the richness and complexity of Brazil's natural environment, both organizing and articulating new ways of appreciating the wonder of their surroundings. Roberto Burle Marx (1909-1994), a renowned landscape architect and passionate conservationist, was a pivotal figure in Brazilian modernism. In addition to his contributions as a landscape architect, his wideranging output included textile design and painting, as well as sculpture, theatrical set and jewelry design. Santídio Pereira (1996) primarily focuses on printmaking. For his woodcuts, he utilizes a distinctive technique in which he favors cutting and joining wood shapes rather than chiseling and carving into a single block of wood. This process results in unique works, subverting ... the logic of print reproduction. Using different approaches, both artists showcase their unique languages in translating tropical flora into form. Burle Marx studied painting in Germany in the 1920s, later earning large-scale mural commissions all over Brazil. These painted tile murals, replete with organic forms mixed with architectural geometry, served as a basis for his large tapestries. Two of Burle Marx’s rare weavings—he produced just thirty in his lifetime—hang in conversation with Pereira’s woodcut prints. In Pereira’s woodcuts, nature appears not only in the organic forms that the artist carves by hand, but also in the veins of the wood that serves as the basis for his engravings. The artist finds inspiration in the Brazilian biomes, spending hours in the foliage making drawings of abstracted bromeliads, rolling hillsides, and tropical birds. Likewise, Burle Marx searched the same jungles for native plants to incorporate into his landscape projects, discovering over forty species that now bear his name. Roberto Burle Marx (b.1909 in São Paulo, Brazil and died in 1994) was one of the most important landscape architects of the 20th century. His work has been shown across North and South America and Europe. In São Paulo, Brazil, past solo exhibitions include Roberto Burle Marx: uma vontade de beleza at Pincacoteca do Estado de São Paulo in 2015; Roberto Burle Marx 100 years: the permanence of the unstable, Paço Imperial Museum, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2008/2009; The Museum of Modern Art of São Paulo, Brazil, 2009; Past solo exhibitions in the United States include Brazilian Modern: The Living Art of Roberto Burle Marx, New York Botanical Garden, NY in 2019; Roberto Burle Marx: Brazilian Modernist, Jewish Museum, New York, NY in 2016; Roberto Burle Marx: The Unnatural Art of the Garden, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY in 1991; Burle Marx, American Society of Landscape Architects, San Francisco, CA in 1986; Burle Marx at Brazilian-American Cultural Institute Washington, DC and at Brazilian Cultural Foundation, New York, NY in 1986; and From Le Corbusier to Oscar Niemeyer: Savoye House - Tremaine House 1949, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY in 1949.

The program involves temporary and travelling exhibitions, artistic open calls, site-specific projects, interviews, talks, publications, and educational public activities. All this is made possible through a collaborative model with artists, galleries, institutions, and the ones who believe in art as a significant social exchange.
