Salvador, Brazil, 1967
Lives and works in Salvador, Brazil
Represented by Paulo Darzé (Bahia-Nordestes), Verve (São Paulo) and Portas Vilas Secas (Rio de Janeiro)

PIPA Prize 2024 nominee

Nádia investigates traditions and practices around the Afro-Brazilian sacred, in particular, black women and their ancestral legacy. The artist seeks to question and deconstruct the eugenic, Eurocentric and patriarchal narratives that have long limited important access to knowledge and understandings related to the rich legacy coming from pre-colonial Africa. She has held solo exhibitions in Salvador, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Paris and Miami, as well as group exhibitions in Los Angeles, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, New York. More recently, Nádia participated in the 24th Biennale of Sydney, and her latest solo exhibition — “Ònà Irin: caminho de ferro” — is on view until the end of April at the Rio Art Museum – MAR. Her works are part of the collections of important institutional collections such as: Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAAM), New York Museum of Art and Design (MAD), Pinacoteca de São Paulo, Inhotim, Museu de Arte do Rio – MAR and Museu de Arte Moderna da Bahia – MAM/BA.
