"Mythologies - Brazilian Contemporary Photography" Exhibition
This event has ended.
This exhibition offers an opportunity to experience Brazilian culture through the photography and video works of six individual artists including Claudia Andujar, Luiz Braga, Rodrigo Braga, João Castilho, Eustáquio Neves, Kenji Ota, and the photography collective Cia de Foto. Mythologies — Brazilian Contemporary Photography is structured around an exploration of the theme of “myth.” These works capture many of the often overlooked “spiritual” artifacts of modern society, and explore the essence of Brazilian culture in ways that offer opportunity to see mythological and allegorical connections that still pervade life and culture in Brazil.
Many of these works offer a documentary quality, casting their view subjectively on Brazilian life, custom, landscape, climate, flora and fauna, and other subjects, but at the same time they also passionately and powerfully express uniqueness of Brazilian views on aesthetics, nature, religion, spirituality, and life and death.
This exhibition offers an excellent opportunity to explore, through the works of contemporary Brazilian photography, the world of “myth” that still lives and breathes in Brazil.
