Abstract

Documents for Brazilian Concrete Art: Dialogues between the library and archives of Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo

This paper describes some perspectives on the exhibition archive and the role of libraries and archives in the process of documenting art. The first section of this article provides an overview of current discussions on the intersections between libraries, museums, and archives. The second section gives an overview of documentation about the Concrete Art exhibition carried out at the Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo in 1977. Exhibition records pose challenges to the documentation standards of museum, library and archives. This section describes how evidence of past exhibition activity documentation can contribute to providing art information sources for Brazilian art history and how libraries and archives can work together to provide access to this material.
