Portugal Portugueses – Arte Contemporânea
Museu Afro Brasil, São Paulo, Brazil09 Sep 2016 - 08 Jan 2017
The Museu Afro Brasil in São Paulo presents the international exhibition „Portugal Portuguese – Contemporary Art“, curated by Emanoel Araujo.
Considered the largest Portuguese contemporary art exhibition ever made in Brazil, with approximately 200 works and over 40 artists, the exhibition is a wide panorama gathering some of the main Portuguese artists from the present and intents to approach them to the Brazilian cultural universe.
Portugal Portugueses is the second exhibition from the trilogy about the most recent production in Africa, Portugal and Brazil, developed by the show’s curator Emanoel Araujo, responsible for commemorating the paramount roots of Brazilian culture (African, Portuguese and Native) in the light of a contemporary reading in the visual arts. Born with the old Portuguese Empire and deepened significantly by the slavery, the intercultural influences of Portugal, Africa and Brazil are redesigned from the contemporary perspective. This great show case „Africa Africans“, was recently elected by the Art Critics Brazilian Association as the best exhibition of the year 2015.
