“Pacific Standard Times: LA/LA” features over 60 exhibitions across Southern California

Presenting over sixty thematically linked exhibitions, “Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA” starts this month across various venues in Southern California. The project addresses issues about the relations between Latin American art and Latino heritage and culture in the US, and has a special place for Brazil in its program: at least four exhibitions are solely devoted to the country’s art and culture.


38 contemporary Brazilian artists participate in the group exhibition “Soft Power. Arte Brasil.”

(Amersfoort, Netherlands) The exhibition is prompted by the prospect of the Rio Olympics: the second global sporting event to be hosted by Brazil within a few months, following the FIFA World Cup in 2014. In the exhibition, Kunsthal KAdE asks what sort of country chooses to showcase itself in this way. Part of the answer to that question can be found in the work of the visual artists and artist collectives currently active in Brazil.


“SITU #4”, solo show by Beto Shwafaty

(São Paulo, Brazil) Galeria Leme presents the fourth site-specific project commissioned for SITU, curated by Bruno de Almeida, giving continuity to a broader research on ways of thinking and discussing the production of urban space through a dialogue between art, architecture and the city. By bringing this type of colonial engine back to the city, and by submitting it to a process of displacement, transformation and disappearance, the artist proposes a collision between two different historical epochs.
