Young Art: Oscar Niemeyer

Written on October 11, 2009 by Felicia Appenteng in Arts & Cultures & Societies, Video

Macarena Ventosa


Museu de Arte Contemporânea da Prefeitura de Niterói (Río de Janeiro, Brasil)

Oscar Niemeyer the Brazilian architect and artist is 101 years old.

So much talking about young art. Art is not a question of young or old, I would rather talk about good or bad.

Now that Brazil will become the first South American country to host the Olympics, let's celebrate and take a minute to meet Niemeyer while sharing with us his passions:

  • How drawing led him to architecture
    • Buildings that inspire feelings
    • His focus to integrate all arts

 And if you live in Madrid, don't forget to visit the exhibition at Fundación Telefónica.

Photographs, films, models and original drawings reveal his conception of art and his politic compromise against social injustice.
