Tunga was one of the most important and influential Brazilian artists of his generation, and he expressed himself through an extremely eclectic variety of media and artistic languages, ranging from drawing to sculpture, to installation, photography, performance, film, video, and writing.
The works on show in this exhibition are of great symbolic impact. Some of them have never been exhibited before and are being presented for the first time. The focus is on the processes and references that were most dear to the artist, and on the works he created during the later years of his career, prior to his untimely death. They range from the more intimate scale of drawings and small sculptures to the power and majesty of a large installation of vast scope.
