FROM BAUHAUS TO (NOW!) – A traveling exhibition of the Mercedes-Benz Art Collection – will be stopping over at the Brazilian metropolis of São Paulo as part of its world tour. The exhibition, which will be on display at the Museum de Arte de São Paulo (MASP), includes 100 paintings, installations, sculptures, photographs and video works from the Collection.
The art works of the exhibition were selected in close collaboration with the MASP. They were created between the 1920s and the present, and represent such artists as Andy Warhol, Willi Baumeister, Josef Albers, Oskar Schlemmer, Sylvie Fleury, John M Armleder and other young artists from South Africa, Asia and Australia.
A key component of the exhibition is a comprehensive educational program for school and college students, which was developed in collaboration with the education department of the MASP.
The world tour of the Mercedes-Benz Art Collection began in Detroit in 2003. After Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town, Tokyo, Karlsruhe and Palma de Mallorca, the exhibition is now making stops on the South American continent. Afterwards, the exhibition will continue on to Madrid and Singapore.
