On February 15, FAAP's Museum of Brazilian Art will be opening the exhibition Marks of Expressionism, featuring around 90 works from the permanent collection, including paintings, prints and drawings.

Visitors will be able to appreciate works done by Brazilian artists, or foreigners living here, that were representative of local visual arts in the 20th century and the first decade of the 21st. Works by Anita Malfatti, Flávio de Carvalho and Oswaldo Goeldi, three prominent members of Brazil's Modernist movement, are the exhibition's main attractions in terms of quantity shown, artistic quality, and crucially for being the most significant exponents of Expressionism in Brazilian visual arts. Examples of the latter are the strong but fragmented lines in the drawings of Anita and Flavio, and in Goeldi's prints, or the bold and impetuous color palette of the first two artists. The exhibition is also showing drawings by Marina Caran and Heinz Kühn, with their strong form and content; paintings by Juarez Magno, Pierre Chalita, Emile Tuchband, and Otoni Gali Rosa from the closing decades of the 20th century, and works by more contemporary artists such as Herman Tacasey and Marco Paulo Rolla.

Curator José Luis Hernández Alfonso says the exhibition aims to show that although this trend emerged a long time ago, its core elements have remained active in relation to its conceptual and formal aspects, due to the atemporal solidity of artistic values arising from an attempt to reveal paths leading to the inner world of human beings and their existence: at all times analogous and universal.
