Talles Lopes is an artist and architect graduated from the State University of Goiás (UEG). He lives and works in Anápolis, a city in the interior of the state of Goiás, located between the planned cities of Goiânia and Brasília. Based on a review of archives, atlases, architectural projects and exhibition catalogues, the artist has been investigating the landscape built on the periphery of modern thought in Brazil, as well as the suspicious relationship between the imaginary of modernity and colonial structures.
He participated in shows such as the XII Bienal Internacional de Arquitetura de São Paulo at CCSP – Centro Cultural São Paulo (2019), the exposition “to-and-fro” (Vaivém) in the Bank of Brazil Cultural Center, and the 7th edition of EDP nas Artes (2020) at Instituto Tomie Ohtake. More recently she was resident artist at the El Despacho studio in Tenerife (2021) and the Delfina Foundation in London (2022).
