Cildo Meireles – ‘Art is a Free Territory’ | Tate

The Brazilian artist Cildo Meireles is widely recognised as one of the leaders in the international development of Conceptual Art. This documentary, made in 2008 by award-winning director Gerald Fox, presents an intimate portrait of the artist’s life and work, as told by the artist himself.

Since the late 1960s Meireles has created sculptures and installations which involve an element of participation, often drawing attention to the body in space and time, as a physical being, and also as a psychological, social, and political one.

A Tate Media production in association with Arts Council England.

Cildo Meireles’s ‘Babel’ is currently on display at Tate Modern:
