BRASIL: ARTE/MÚSICA / BRAZIL: ART/MUSIC

19.01 - 16.03.2014


The exhibition deals with ‘dangerous liaisons’ between the visual arts and music. Not only music lovers know that Brazil is truly a musical melting pot: bossa nova, samba, tropical psychedelia or funk are but some of the contemporary trends present in Brazilian music. Artistic crossovers and interdisciplinary approaches being characteristic for Brazilian artists, the exhibition at the Zachęta Project Room presents works that feature musical themes. On display are works that recall iconic figures of Brazilian music, such as Laercio Redondo’s installation devoted to Carmen Miranda, and works of musicians-come-visual artists, such as the paintings of Arnaldo Dias Baptista, vocalist of the cult band Os Mutantes. The show features also performative actions by Cabelo, a musician, poet and visual artist, and by a younger-generation multidisciplinary artist, Fabiana Faleiros.
