Visual artist Leda Catunda is considered one of the most influential names of the so-called Geração 80 in Brazil. She participated in three editions of the São Paulo Biennial, and has showcased her work in institutions such as MoMA, in New York, and Centre Georges-Pompidou, in Paris. Graduated in 1984 from Fundação Armando Álvares Penteado (FAAP), in São Paulo, with a BA in Visual Arts, she has conciliated teaching jobs with her artistic practice since 1986, and got her Doctorate degree from the Escola de Comunicações e Artes da Universidade de São Paulo (ECA/USP) in 2003. In 2009, she held her first retrospective exhibition at Pinacoteca de São Paulo, curated by Ivo Mesquita. In 2015, she exhibited another retrospective, this time curated by Jacopo Crivelli Visconti, featuring works from 1985 to 2015, at the Centro Cultural Banco do Nordeste, Fortaleza.
