South America wasn't immune to the modernist movement that took hold in mid-twentieth century Europe, across the continent artists were producing vibrant, radical art to rival that being made over here. With artists like the brilliant Helio Oiticica and Juan Melé this is sure to be a colourful, and no doubt radical, showcase of South American modernism.

The brief for this collection of work isn't entirely clear, and neither is the accompanying interpretation. Nevertheless, it's really rather lovely. Don't expect to have heard of any of the artists featured, but in a way that lack of context is part of the charm. It is art for its own sake.
