Quite early in my career as an art critic, I organised what today is considered a historically significant exhibition: ‘Helio Oiticica’ at the Whitechapel Art Gallery in 1969. Despite this recognition, very little information on the events that led to it have been available to the public, apart from work by the author such as “Hélio Oiticica’s ‘Whitechapel Experiment’” (The Whitechapel Art Gallery Centenary Review, Whitechapel Gallery, 2001) and contribution to events such as “Hélio Oiticica: the Hard Questions”, Whitechapel Gallery (panellist) 2002.

|Additional Information (Publicly available):|
Hélio Oiticica (1937-80) has come to be recognised as one of the most brilliant and innovative artists of the second half of the 20th century. Both artist and thinker, he developed a uniquely beautiful body of work. Synthesising the legacy of modernism, avant-garde experiment, Brazilian popular cultures born of adversity, and a radical philosophy of participation, he explored deeply the possibility of creative liberty in today's world.
