Your North Surrealism Isn’t Our South Realism, or What Is Transgression Today?

“Permeated with urban problems and social contrasts, São Paulo offers quotidian situations promoting various types of encounters: I’m exposed to unimaginable situations, often discovering, accidentally, situations of conflict. My work uses these situations as starting points. Experiencing these accidents makes me think of ways to immortalize transitory and ephemeral forms. Although politically loaded, these accidents usually go unnoticed.” –Marcelo Cidade

Trauma and Creativity

Karen Finley is known for incendiary and emotionally complex works that span the mediums of performance, music, photography, video, and installation. Her raw, transgressive pieces have provoked controversy and debate on themes of social injustice, sexual politics, and family dysfunction. In 1998, she was the plaintiff in a contentious Supreme Court case Finley v. NEA that focused on public funding and the arts—a situation that brought her work to wide audiences and unexpected contexts.

Tom Marioni is a seminal figure of Conceptualism, credited by many as creating one of the first works to introduce the concept of duration into artistic production. The work One Second Sculpture (1969) was exhibited in the 2005 Lyon Biennial as having presaged the work of many contemporary artists using sound and duration as subjects. Marioni also pioneered using social situations as art with his legendary 1970 work The Act of Drinking Beer with Friends Is the Highest Form of Art.
