(Miami, USA) As the end of year approaches, so does one of the art world’s favorite fairs: Art Basel Miami Beach starts next Thursday, December 1st. Reaching its fourteenth edition, the event gathers over 200 of the leading international modern and contemporary art galleries—amongst which 16 are Brazilian—distributed along nine different sectors. Moreover, this year’s edition features works produced by a number of PIPA Prize nominees, such as the finalists Cinthia Marcelle, Laercio Redondo and Wagner Malta Tavares.
(Barcelona, Spain) Sontag once wrote that “perhaps too much value is assigned to memory, not enough to thinking”. Laercio Redondo, PIPA Prize 2013 finalist, seems to agree. In his first solo show in Spain, “Restauro (Restoration)”, the artist questions founding elements of Brazil’s collective memory and identity, addressing themes such as slavery, nationalism, modernity and urban imaginary. The exhibition is being held at the Ana Mas Projects gallery and runs until December 9th.
(Texas, USA) Redondo creates installations and multimedia works that emerge from his deep research into cultural dynamics, Brazilian architecture and its practitioners. In his first solo exhibition in the USA, the artist examines such important Brazilian figures as Athos Bulcão, Lina Bo Bardi and Lota de Macedo Soares.
