Murilo Mendes, poeta crítico: o infinito íntimo
Until 28 January 2024
From his meeting with Ismael Nery, in 1921, until his death in 1975, Murilo Mendes was one of the most influential figures in Brazilian artistic life. He was an art critic, collector, exhibition organizer, as well as a poet. He played a decisive role in the formation of an entire generation of critics, from Mario Pedrosa to Antônio Bento and Rubens Navarra and was Mário de Andrade’s interlocutor with regard to Rio de Janeiro art. This importance, however, is rarely recognized.
