A Pantagruelian Pop: Teresinha Soares’s ‘Erotic Art of Contestation’

2015

Abstract

This article provides an overview of the work produced by Brazilian artist Teresinha Soares in the late 1960s and early 1970s and examines the various terms that have been used to describe and define it. With respect to the specificity of Soares’s work the article proposes that the adjective ‘Pantagruelian’ can be annexed to ‘pop’ to reveal its rootedness in popular traditions and folklore in Brazil.
