Carlito Carvalhosa
Brazilian, b. 1961
Follow

Carlito Carvalhosa is one of Brazil’s most celebrated conceptual artists. In sculptures and ambitious installations, Carvalhosa uses diverse mediums and found objects—including electric lights, fabric, wax, and mirrors—to explore architectural space and the nature of materials. He began his career creating abstract paintings that blended painterly gestures with an emphasis on materiality, and continued to explore his fascination with materials with work in sculpture, applying the Egyptian lost-wax method and working with porcelain. Carvalhosa’s more recent work has involved architectural interventions and interactive installations, his best-known piece being Sum of Days (2011), a monumental site-specific installation for the MoMA’s atrium. Hanging a white, translucent material from the ceiling and a system of microphones that recorded and replayed the accumulation of each day’s ambient noise, he placed viewers in an experience of total spatial and sonic immersion.
