Summary note:
Concrete and glass: MASP's collection on Lina Bo Bardi's easel records the revival of the iconic crystal easels, also called glass trestles, which were the expography designed by Lina Bo Bardi for the current headquarters of MASP Paulo Assis Chateaubriand), inaugurated in 1968. By removing the works from the wall and placing them on transparent glass supports supported by a concrete base, and freely scattering them through the monumental space of the institution, the architect sought to question the vision of the Museum as a privileged cultural space, giving the visitor the autonomy to decide their own course through the collection. Removed in 1996 on the pretext that they damaged the works, the easels were renovated and reincorporated into the assembly of the collection in December 2015, starting with the critical review and the resumption of the founding origins of the museum adopted by its new artistic director. Organized by Adriano Pedrosa and Luiza Proença, Concrete and Crystal: the MASP collection on the easels of Lina Bo Bardi brings together more than 300 images of the works of the collection exposed in the presentation of the new easels, alongside historical photographs of the original easels and related documents To the theme. The book also presents essays by different authors on crystal easels, which approach them from different perspectives, reflecting on their historical, conceptual and technical.
