A retrospective exhibition by Regina Silveira (1939, Porto Alegre, RS).
An artist with an MA and PhD in art from the School of Communication and Arts of USP, where she also served as a professor, Silveira is a leading figure of conceptual art and experimentation with artistic languages and media, whose career intersects with the history of MAC USP. This exhibition is concentrated on Silveira’s works that form part of the museum’s collection, which is receiving an important addition this year through a new donation. Since the 1960s, she has held solo exhibitions and participated in selected group shows in Brazil and abroad. She participated in the 16th, 17th and 24th editions of the Bienal de São Paulo (1981, 1983, 1998) and in countless other large presentations, such as: the Bienal de Curitiba (Brazil, 2013 and 2015); the Bienal do Mercosul (Porto Alegre, Brazil, 2001 and 2011); the Bienal de La Habana (Cuba, 1986, 1998 and 2015); the 6th Taipei Biennial (Taiwan, 2006); the 2nd Setouchi Triennale (Japan, 2016) and the 1st BienalSur (Argentina, 2017). She lives in São Paulo (SP, Brazil).
