Aracaju, Brazil, 1986.
Lives and works in between Niterói and Aracaju, Brazil.
PIPA Prize 2022 nominee.
Alan Adi’s work (Aracaju, 1986) commonly involves researching topics related to the formation of Brazilian society from the perspective of the northeast region of Brazil, highlighting the artistic production coming from this region at the same time that this production supports the construction of works that discuss matters such as migration, economy, history and education. Interactions between the social heritage of images associated with the “Nordeste” and the current context of the nation take up most of his recent research, which is linked to the usual formats of what was historically determined as visual poetics from the region.
