Maurício Chades is an artist and filmmaker. Bachelor in Audiovisual and Master in Art and Technology from the University of Brasília and Master in Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In Brasília, he participated in the collectives Espaço AVI, Kinofogo Cineclube and NINHO – Collective for Research in Art, Interactivity and Agroecology. His work, between film, installation, sculpture and performance, speculates on symbiotic, queer and anti-colonial futures. Creating syntropic environments and weaving multi-species alliances, his artistic practice combines storytelling with restorative agriculture, composting and fungiculture.

His works were shown at national and international film festivals and exhibitions, such as Mostra de Cinema de Tiradentes, Olhar de Cinema, Queer Lisboa and FILE – Festival Internacional de Linguagem Eletrônica. In 2019, his first solo exhibition, Pirâmide, Urubu, premiered at the Digital TV Tower in Brasília, a project awarded the Frankenthaler Climate Art Awards in 2022. In 2023 he participated in the Videobrasil Biennial with Cemitério Verde, a film awarded first place at the e- Flux Film Award.
