Opening | “Américas”, solo exhibition by Arjan Martins

(Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) “Although contemporary art has returned to the thematic universes, after a disruption with the modern past, this return is followed by poetic and formal demands. In this exhibition, named by Arjan Martins as “Américas”, the main theme is otherness, ethnic solidarity. But this return we lately see in Arjan does not overshadow the image quality”, says curator Paulo Sergio Duarte.
