Two simultaneous exhibitions with Brazilian artists in Rotterdam

(Rotterdam, Netherlands)

Since January 19, two group shows with Brazilian artists are exhibited in Rotterdam: “New Work”, an individual with Adriano Amaral, and “An exhibition with works by Athos Bulcão, Marcos Castro, Anna Franceschini, Ni Haifeng, Nicolás Lamas, Praneet Soi, Adriana Varejão, Ana Vaz, Bouke de Vries, Raed Yassin, and Karlos Gil & Belén Zahera”. Both shows are part of the winter exhibitions program at Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art.

For “New work”, Adriano Amaral creates immersive installations with an intuitive approach towards materials. He creates environments in which natural and synthetic elements merge, forming hybrids between technology and mysticism. His installation and sculptural works combine industrial and discarded personal objects; his paintings and videos combine imagery drawn as much from landscapes as from symbols. The exhibition is organized by guest curator Julia Mullié.

On the other hand, the group exhibition explores the immigration of a form, and changing value systems that visualize national ideals and cultural identities. It focuses on blue and white ceramic to explore how “cosmopolitan” objects are rooted in a national project. This kind of ceramic is referred to as Blue Delft in the Netherlands. In other countries, this kind of ceramic also generally points to their original provenance or political geography, like Talavera or Iznik. The exhibition is organized by guest curator Bernardo José de Souza and Sofia Hernandez Chong Cuy, director at Witte de With.
