São Paulo Hosts Unprecedented Exhibition by American Artist Man Ray

This is the first time that 255 of the artist's works will be shown to the public in Brazil. There are objects, videos, and photographs created during the years when he lived in Paris (1921 to 1940), regarded as his most ebullient creative period.

I photograph the things that I do not wish to paint, the things which already have an existence," said Man Ray (1890-1976), who was a painter and a photographer, filmmaker and sculptor, one of the great exponents of avant-garde movements such as Dada and Surrealism. Man Ray is known for exploring photography and raising it to the level of art.

Some of these features of the American artist will be on display from Wednesday . . .
