Modernist Inventions of the Brazilian Baroque

Thursday, July 19, 2018, at 5:30-6:30 PM
229 E. Victoria Street.

This talk explores how the “Brazilian Baroque” was reinvented by leading intellectuals and architects in mid-twentieth century Brazil as a forerunner of a national modernist architectural idiom. We will see some of the most important late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century Baroque churches, and consider how these buildings, during the Getúlio Vargas dictatorship, served to support nationalist politics through the construction of a “Brazilian” architectural lineage. In the process, Baroque architecture and sculpture in Brazil, particularly the works of “Aleijadinho” [Antônio Francisco Lisboa] (1730/8-1814) with the works of leading modernist architects and planners, such as Oscar Niemeyer (1907-1912) and Lúcio Costa (1902-1998).
