COUTO, Maria de Fátima Morethy. Activist art and social change: Hélio Oiticica and the exhibition Nova Objetividade Brasileira. Estud. hist. (Rio J.) [online]. 2012, vol.25, n.49, pp.71-87. ISSN 0103-2186.

The article analyzes the aims and the impact of one of the most important avant-garde exhibitions held in the 1960's at the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro: Nova Objetividade Brasileira. Carried out one year before the AI-5, this exhibition demonstrates the vitality of the ongoing debate about the possibility of creating "a typically Brazilian culture, with its own characteristics and personality."

Keywords : Hélio Oiticica; Brazilian avant-garde art; art exhibitions; Nova Objetividade Brasileira; figurative art; military dictatorship.
