About the exhibition

Curators:
Gunnar B. Kvaran, Astrup Fearnley Museet (Oslo);
Hans-Ulrich Obrist, Serpentine Gallery (London);
Thierry Raspail, Musée d’art contemporain (Lyon),
together with Cheryl Sim, DHC/ART Foundation for Contemporary Art (Montreal).

DHC/ART Foundation for Contemporary Art is pleased to present IMAGINE BRAZIL, a major exhibition of contemporary art from Brazil.

“We all have our own idea of Brazil. It is a country that is close to us and yet at the same time distant, mysterious and uncanny. In a certain way, Brazil is an imaginary country. It is a country of spectacular nature and magic, of ethnic and social diversity. In fact, it is not one country but multiple, variable, rich and overwhelming lands. There is thus no one way to sum up the nation or the country, and the same goes for its art scene.

This is why we have called our exhibition IMAGINE BRAZIL. What you will see is a constellation of works by young artists, our view on emerging Brazilian contemporary art. We also present two further exhibitions within the exhibition: a selection of more established artists who have been invited into the show by the younger ones whom we have chosen, providing a story of recent art in Brazil, and an exhibition of artists’ books by emerging practitioners, curated by Jacopo Crivelli Visconti and Ana Luiza Fonseca. There is no attempt to tell a single truth through these selections, only to make hypotheses and propositions based on our knowledge, sensibility and experience, the personal choices of the young Brazilian artists and the expertise of the Brazilian curators.”
