Ricardo Basbaum

(São Paulo, Brazil 1961) Artist and writer. Basbaum investigates art as an intermediating device and platform for the articulation between the sensorial experience, sociability, and language. Since the 1990s, he has nurtured a vocabulary specific to his work, applying it in a particular way to each new project. Recent solo-projects include subhidroinfraentre (Galeria Jaqueline Martins, São Paulo, 2021), Would you like to participate in an artistic experience? (Dragão do Mar, Fortaleza, 2018), and re-projecting (london) (The Showroom, London, 2013). He participated in the 30th and 25th Bienal de São Paulo (2002, 2012), and in documenta 12 (2007). His work was recently included in the 35th Panorama da Arte Brasileira (Museu de Arte Moderna de São Paulo, 2017), Free Collection Displays (New Tate Modern, London, 2016), and the 20th Sydney Biennial (2016). He has published the works Diagrams, 1994 – ongoing (Errant Bodies Press, 2016), Manual do artista-etc (Azougue, 2013), and Além da pureza visual (Zouk, 2007). In 2021, he was visiting artist at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. He is currently a full professor in the Art Department of the Universidade Federal Fluminense (Brazil), where he also works as a researcher at the Pós-Graduação em Estudos Contemporâneos das Artes (PPGCA-UFF).
