  • Catalogue Essay

    Recognized for his work in as a painter, graphic artist and printmaker, in the 1970s Ivald Granato was celebrated as a flamboyant advocate for change and a participant in the nascent scene of protest and performance art of the day. His performance and video based on the theme of the artist and model scandalized the Panamerican School of Art in Sâo Paulo when presented in 1991. Recognized for his work as a visual artist, in 1979 Granato was presented an award for best design by the Art Critics Association, Brazil. His iconic Go Back offered here (1989) figures in a whirl of paint and brush, resonant with several of the paintings from the collection.  He has participated seven times in the Bienals of Sâo Paulo.
