The Nearest Air: A Survey of Works by Waltercio Caldas is in its final days! The artist’s first career survey, the exhibition explores Caldas’s full body of work from the 1960s through the present and investigates his centrality within Brazilian art, his role on the international stage, and his unique position on art and its ethos.

In October, Waltercio Caldas spent five days with the guest curator and Blanton installation team to create the Austin presentation of this exhibition. More than many artists, he stays intimately involved in the staging of each work whenever it is exhibited. The following video shows the very deliberative working process behind The Nearest Air.

We encourage you to visit The Nearest Air before it closes on Sunday, January 12. For more information about the exhibition, please click here.
