This cotton Hélio Oiticica T-Shirt from UNIQLO’s Color & Rhythm collection—featuring work by Oiticica represented in MoMA’s collection—celebrates the Museum’s ongoing commitment to collecting and exhibiting Latin American art.
One of the most influential artists of 20th century, Hélio Oiticica pioneered new aesthetic experiences that blurred the boundaries between life and art. Oiticica challenged traditional notions of art by making viewer participation essential in his work. His dynamic grid-like compositions on cardboard, suspended wooden structures, wearable objects, and large-scale multisensorial installations, have influenced generations of contemporary artists world-wide.
