This exhibition brings together paintings from Mira Schendel’s Sarrafo (1987) and Brancos e Pretos (1985 – 1987) series, two major bodies of work from the last decade of her life, accompanied by a number of related drawings and works on paper. Cerebral and poetically profound, Schendel’s final series, Sarrafo, reconciled her painting and sculpture practices, encapsulating an oeuvre that explored notions of temporality, transience, and existence. ‘Mira Schendel. Sarrafos and Black and White Works’ is organized with Olivier Renaud-Clément and the collaboration of Bergamin & Gomide, São Paulo.
