About

Born in Rio de Janeiro, the artist Cildo Meireles is best known for his installations that vary in scale, material and subject matter. This documentary, made in 2008 by award-winning director Gerald Fox, presents an intimate portrait of the artist’s life and work, as told by the artist himself. A pioneer of installation art in the 1960s, Brazilian artist Cildo Meireles has influenced generations of international artists. His dramatic and politically charged environments have included maze-like structures built on broken glass that the visitor must walk across, and rooms filled with ashes and the smell of gas. A Tate Media production in association with Arts Council England.
