FDP, Pace Gallery, and Mendes Woods DM present Calor Universal. Curated by German Dushá, this exhibition brings together a cross-generational group of artists including José Adário dos Santos, Tarsila do Amaral, Maria Auxiliadora, Lynda Benglis, Castiel Vitorino Brasileiro, Carolina Caycedo, Sonia Gomes, Wifredo Lam, Patricia Leite, Amadeo Luciano Lorenzato, Matta, Beatriz Milhazes, Paulo Monteiro, Louise Nevelson, Rosana Paulino, Solange Pessoa, Richard Pousette-Dart, Heitor dos Prazeres, Marina Perez Simão, Bárbara Sánchez-Kane, Antoni Tàpies and Rubem Valentim.

Featuring a diverse array of work across different mediums and styles, the show will examine themes of transcendence and transmutation through artistic expression. Including both figurative and abstract works, the exhibition explores the concept of “calor,” understood as sublimation, as a vehicle for transforming material states. Works in the exhibition are united by a calor universal, an energy flux that is explored in the landscapes, bodies, subjectivities, archetypes, and symbols on view. The bespoke design for the presentation will incorporate a number of plinths with shapes that guide visitors through a unique viewing experience.

Opening reception with light refreshments Saturday, July 2, 4-6pm
