Opening on August 29, 2013, 'Meu Bem' will bring together about 50 artworks from 1989 until the present day including paintings, prints and collages. This exhibition will showcase the exceptional artistic career of one of Brazil’s leading artists, represented in national and international collections, both public and private, such as MoMA, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museums. Early twentieth century European modernism plays a significant role in the artist's formal references. Milhazes cites three artists as the ‘centre of her interest': Matisse, Mondrian and Tarsila do Amaral. This unification of Western and Latin American influences inspired an entirely unique formal exploration, which cements Milhazes's position as one of the leading South American artists working today. Milhazes has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Beyeler Foundation, Basel, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Cartier Foundation, Paris and Estação Pinacoteca, Sao Paulo. She was the artist selected for a solo exhibition at the Whitechapel Gallery at Windsor, Vero Beach Florida in December 2011. In 2012 Milhazes had a major retrospective at the Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, Argentina. 'Meu Bem' will also be presented at the Museu Oscar Niemeyer - MON, in Curitiba, Brazil, from November 2013 to February 2014. The exhibition runs from August 29 to October 27, 2013.
