About

Angelina Gualdoni’s paintings have a disaffecting, almost apocalyptic quality that is formally balanced by beautiful textures and colors as well as the shapes of modernist architecture. Gualdoni’s interest lies in the entropic decay and destruction of these buildings, which often reflected utopian designs for the future when they were constructed. Taking the city of Brasilia as a case study for this exhibition, she depicts government buildings and monuments located in the Praça dos Tres Poderes (Square of the Three Powers) to see how many mid-century building designs and urban plans function today.
