Michael Smith in "From the Object to the World - The Inhotim Collection", Itaú Cultural, São Paulo

March 19, 2015

Hales Gallery is pleased to announce Michael Smith's participation in The Inhotim Collection's touring exhibition, Do Objeto para o Mundo – Coleção Inhotim [From the Object to the World – The Inhotim Collection], which is travelling from the Palácio das Artes and the Centro de Arte Contemporânea e Fotografia in Belo Horizonte to the Itaú Cultural in São Paulo.


Featuring over 50 artworks, including Michael Smith's slide installation, USA Freestyle Disco Championship (1979/2003), the exhibition is composed of a cross-section of the Inhotim Collection and examines the field of contemporary art, in the light of the institution’s collection and programmes. The exhibition focuses on a historical moment when art expanded beyond objects to become more open to the world. In this context, elements from daily life, from real space, from politics and the body are incorporated into art and the spectator becomes a participant.
