“Forest: Ancestry & Dystopia” presents 16 Brazilian artists

The Fundación Pablo Atchugarry Miami holds, until July 16th, 2022, Forest: Ancestry & Dystopia, a group show presented by The55Project Art Foundation. The exhibition features the work of 16 Brazilian artists, many of whom have dedicated their careers to chronicling life in the rainforest and protecting an ecosystem. Collectively, their work examines the delicate, and often perilous, balance between ecology, ancestral communities and unbridled ambition encroaching on the forest—with profound impact for the planet.

Curated by Eder Chiodetto, the exhibition aims to raise awareness about the Amazon’s rich natural resources, reflecting on its mythical, environmental, and anthropological aspects, as well as calling attention to the destructive forces that threaten the biome: deforestation, agro-industry, and illegal mining.

Check out all of the participating artists: Claudia Andujar, Gisela Motta, Leandro Lima, Walda Marques, Elaine Pessoa, Luiz Braga, Elza Lima, Rodrigo Braga, Edgar Kanaykõ, Rogério Assis, Regina Parra, Lalo de Almeida, Victor Moriyama, Nailana Thiely, Luciana Magno, and Ana Nitzan.
