Beatriz Milhazes First US Retrospective at Pérez Art Museum Miami
Jardim Botânico, the first US retrospective of Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes opened on September 19th at Pérez Art Museum, Miami. Exhibited are works Milhazes produced over the last 25 years, attesting to the development of her colorful and ornate large-scale abstract paintings. Inspired by popular culture, both high and low, Milhazes combines motifs of disparate sources – graffiti, lace patterns, carnaval, food packaging, colonial design, etc. – onto decorative planes that also decipher facets of Brazilian culture.
