“The Cage-Bed of Dreams”: Hélio Oiticica and the Evolution of the Barráco
James Rondeau, newly appointed director of the Art Institute of Chicago, gave his Smart Lecture in April on the work of Hélio Oiticica. Formerly the Dittmer Chair and Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Art Institute, he is closely tied to the upcoming exhibition of Oiticica’s work. His long and esteemed career at the Art Institute and recent appointment to the Directorship demonstrate his valuable contributions to the field of Art History and the arts community at large.
