44 Brazilian contemporary artists take part in the itinerant exhibition “Imagine Brazil”

(Quebec, Canada) “In a certain way, Brazil is an imaginary country. It is a country of spectacular nature and magic, of ethnic and social diversity. In fact, it is not one country but multiple, variable, rich and overwhelming lands. There is thus no one way to sum up the nation or the country, and the same goes for its art scene”, affirm the curators Gunnar B. Kvaran, Hans-Ulrich Obrist and Thierry Raspail.

(São Paulo, Brazil) Curators Hans Ulrich Obrist, Gunnar Kvaran and Thierry Raspail, after months of research in Brazil, designed this exhibition. Fourteen young artists were asked, in turn, to invite an established artist whom they considered to be a reference or someone whose work was similar to their own and to whom they wished to pay tribute. Therefore, Imagine Brazil exhibits the work of 27 artists in total.
