Abraham Palatnik (Natal, RN, 1928). Lives and works in Rio de Janeiro. Palatnik is a pioneer of art and technology worldwide, alongside names like Malina, Schöefer and Healey. His first device cinecromático, blue and purple in the first movement, caused a crash in the traditional conventions related to media art discussed in the jury selection of the first Sao Paulo Biennial in 1951. The disconcerting part was incorporated into the Biennial Palatnik and provoked a strong impact on international critics, receiving an honorable mention award. "The real art of the future" as Mario Pedrosa emphasized text in Tribuna da Imprensa, that same year. Settled in Rio and then on to artists such as Ivan Serpa, Almir Mavignier Renin and Katz, had remarkable experiences in the Psychiatric Hospital Mill Inside, in the late 1940s, which led him to abandon painting. The artist continued to participate in the Biennial - the 32nd Venice Biennale in 1964, alongside Mavignier, Volpi and Weissmann, among others, various exhibitions of weight as constructive art in Brazil - Adolpho Leirner Collection, 1998 (today the collection belongs to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, USA), and the inaugural edition of the Mercosul Biennial, a year earlier. Palatnik has its parts in important collections in Brazil, such as the MAM-SP, MAC Niterói, RJ-MAM, the MAC-USP, MOMA, NY, the Malba, Buenos Aires, and in prestigious private collections.
