The Brazilian reception of abstract impressionism, in the first eight Bienais of São Paulo, witness the migration of the internation art axis from Paris to New York, as well a domestic quarrel over how should we narrate and construct a national tradition of painting. In this sense, we shall tackle this reception in the Bienais from 1951 to 1965, positioning it in a global dynamics in which France, Brazil and the United States of America are reinventing themselves. We are interested in the way that an image of Brazil was put together alongside the notions of modernism that the French and the North-American endeavored. Notions as "Center" and "Periphery" will be framed in hindsight, in a narrative of modernism located after "global art's" outbreak and capable of spanning the center's instability, which, in that time, was under construction and dispute.
