A pioneer of Mail art in Brazil in the 60s, associated with Fluxus in the 70s, and influenced by the work of pioneers of the avant-garde such as Marcel Duchamp and John Cage; Bruscky’s practice resists straightforward classifications, boldly combining visual and literary language to voice his artistic identity and position within society. Since the late 60s, Bruscky has committed to an experimental approach which has combined his own performance and radical public interventions, with conceptual strategies of documentation and communication through collage, sculpture, artist books, “poetic objects,” classified and mail artworks, visual music and poetry.

Investigating the role of new media in art, Bruscky has developed a humorous, yet harshly critical commentary of local and international culture and politics. In 1982 he was awarded the prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship in New York, where he worked for one year. Here, he developed some of his most important experimental works using Xerox machines, and employed the use of photocopies, blueprints, artist stamps and postal envelopes as a strategy to blur the boundaries of art, poetry and politics.

The exhibition at Richard Saltoun Gallery will be a unique opportunity to explore Bruscky’s radical language, through a major display of over 200 works, crossing all media, created between the late 1960s up until today.
