Ferreira Gullar in conversation with/en conversación con Ariel Jiménez, is the fifth title in the CONVERSACIONES/ CONVERSATIONS series. This 272-page, bilingual (English-Spanish) book presents a vivid portrait of Ferreira Gullar, an art critic, political essayist, playwright, and poet who has been a key and controversial figure in the Brazilian cultural scene for the past 60 years. This publication presents conversations conducted over the past two years between Gullar and art historian Ariel Jiménez.
Ferreira Gullar was born in 1930 in São Luís, Maranhão, Brazil. His poetic production has been closely intertwined with his work as an art critic. From his first major collection of poems, published in 1954, to his Concrete and Neoconcrete work, published from 1957 to 1959 (and including the important 1959 works “Neoconcrete Manifesto” and “Theory of the Non-Object”), Ferreira’s writings are essential to the history of Brazilian and Latin American literature, deeply influencing generations of artists.
