Anna Maria Maiolino

'Por um fio (By a Thread)'

Anna Maria Maiolino’s life path has informed much of her work. An Italian immigrant, Maiolino passed through the U.S. and Venezuela before ultimately establishing herself in Brazil. Through poetic meditations, she masterfully delves into the acts of creation and destruction while also unveiling the monumental elements of intimacy and domesticity. Por um fio (By a Thread) is a survey exhibition that presents a wide range of the artist’s prolific output from 1972 to today and features a specially commissioned work from her series Terra Modelada for the SCAD Museum of Art. The exhibition highlights both formal and conceptual notions of interconnectedness in a deliberate attempt to emphasize humanity and empathy as integral elements of her artistic practice.
