Marilia Furman is an artist and educator. Her work intends to shape existing tensions in the modern commodity-producing society, making explicit the abstract – but ostensibly oppressive – structures that regulate social interactions. Exploring conflicting relationships between raw materials or resorting to symbolic operations, the artist diverts and appropriates diverse visual signs, originating from the field of consumption, nationalism or conventionally artistic techniques.

Her solo shows include Heroico, a long-term installation performance held at Publica (São Paulo, 2022) with support from the Moraes-Barbosa Collection; Monstrous (2022), Wrong Position (2019) and Appears, Inverts – and against (2015), released at PSM Gallery (Berlim); the installation VER, at Auroras (São Paulo, 2019), besides solo projects in art fairs. Among the group show, she highlights Contramemória, Theatro Municipal (São Paulo, 2022); No presente, a vida (é) política, Central Galeria (São Paulo, 2020); Construção, Mendes Wood DM (São Paulo, 2020); Deus está solto!, Galeria Jaqueline Martins (São Paulo, 2017); Um Trabalho | Um Texto (São Paulo, 2017); Now/Here, Franz Josefs Kai 3 (Viena, 2016); Rumos Artes Visuais, Itaú Cultural (2012-2013), and others.
