Beatriz Milhazes’ ‘Maresias’ opens at Turner Contemporary


27 May - 10 September 2023

Turner Contemporary, Margate

Turner Contemporary will host the exhibition ‘Maresias’, showcasing the works of Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes. Featuring 20 key paintings and 5 works on paper, the exhibition will highlight Milhazes’ career over the past 40 years and is set to be a major highlight of the gallery’s programme.

Since gaining recognition in the 1980s as a foremost figure in the Brazilian art movement Geração Oitenta, Milhazes is known today as one of the most prominent abstract artists of her time. Her vibrant, large-scale abstract canvases present a fascinating interplay between planned construction and spontaneity. With nature as a central theme of the artist’s work, ‘Maresias’ focuses on humanity's relationship with the environment and speaks to Turner Contemporary’s unique coastal location, as well as the gallery’s dedication to contemporary ecological issues.
