Transport yourself to Brazil with a trip through CMOA's new exhibition "Hélio Oiticica: To Organize Delirium" and beats by IOIA, a DJ duo straight from Rio de Janiero.

See, touch, wear, and immerse yourself in Oiticica's creations. Then listen quietly, and you just may hear his voice calling for revolution.

"Hélio Oiticica: To Organize Delirium" is the first comprehensive US retrospective of the influential Brazilian artist (1937–1980). Ranging from beautifully balanced geometric paintings to immersive, interactive environments, Oiticica’s work is visually arresting, wholly original, and seeks to build a participatory relationship with audiences. The exhibition is co-organized by CMOA, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and The Art Institute of Chicago.

The massive installation "Eden," staged in the Hall of Sculpture at the heart of the museum, is Oiticica’s most ambitious. This huge work includes spaces designed to engage the senses and promote creative thought, tents for sleeping or listening to music, and beds filled with straw for relaxation or light reading. Because of its size, it is rarely presented.
