Troca Brasil Lunchtime Lecture Series

I first encountered Ernesto Neto's sensual soft sculptures at London's ICA in 2000 and was as intrigued by their seductive forms as by learning that their interactive nature caused gallery attendants to continually tend to minor tears in the thin lycra fabric. Neto's large, biomorphic, womb-like interactive sculptures are complete with orifices and dangling appendages, and must be seen in person to experience their full sensory impact.

This fall, Neto's work comes to Portland as part of Troca Brasil, an exchange between PNCA and A Gentil Carioca, the gallery that Neto co-founded in Rio de Janiero. Neto, along with fellow founders Marcio Botner and Laura Lima, kick off the exhibition early this week with a series of lunchtime lectures on their work in the upcoming exhibition, which opens this Thursday. On Friday, the series culminates in an evening lecture by Neto, who is by far the most widely acclaimed and exhibited artist in the group.
