Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 1986.
Lives and works in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Represented by Galeria Jaqueline Martins.
PIPA Prize 2018 and 2019 nominee.
Maria Noujaim holds a degree in Dance from the Angel Vianna School and is a PhD candidate in Social History of Culture from the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro – PUC-RJ. Her works rise on movements conformed between sculpture and language – in a process that relates the body with the space -, with investigations on form and poetry. She recently held the solo show “Recomeços: quatro inícios” at Jaqueline Martins Gallery and took part in collective shows in independent and institutional spaces, such as Casamata (RJ), Átomos (Rio de Janeiro), Observatório (São Paulo), Oi Futuro (Rio de Janeiro), Casa França-Brasil (Rio de Janeiro), A Gentil Carioca (Rio de Janeiro), among others.
