Tn 41 Credito Ivan Cardoso
Tn Credito Cesar Oiticica

Description

Torquato Neto (1944-1972) lived passionately. Engaged on multiple fronts - in film, music, and journalism - this poet from the far-northeastern state of Piauí partook faithfully in the revolution that changed the course of Brazilian culture in the 1960s and 70s. Neto was one of the most active thinkers and lyricists of the Tropicália movement, a partner of Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso and Jards Macalé. Through producing and partaking in marginal art forms, Neto radicalized his performances and cultural criticisms alongside such figures of Brazil’s counter-culture as Waly Salomão, Ivan Cardoso, and Hélio Oiticica.
