Cildo Meireles

Famed Brazilian artist Cildo Meireles, Museo del Barrio curator Deborah Cullen, and Galerie Lelong Vice President Mary Sabbatino join host Michael Rush for an unusual discussion about Meireles' new work, inspired in part by the KKK.

Cildo Meireles is one of Brazil's most important - and most political - of contemporary sculptors, whose work deals with suppression - of space and time as well as minds. He names his favorite artists as Marcel Duchamp, Piero Manzoni, Orson Welles and Yves Klein and says that visual art has to be for "people who have no eyes."
