Land+Body=Escape (Miami, Fl) |curated by Tatiane Schilaro

ART:
Featuring 15 emerging Brazilian artists based across the US and Brazil, the show subverts traditional representations of Brazilian landscapes and bodies. The works represent a means of escape, while also seizing upon emblematic images of Brazilianness: from beachfronts to the Amazon rainforest, to the urban megacity. In Brazil, both landscape and body have been idealized, either through commodification of “tropical nature,” or via the spectacle of the female body, for instance, in the celebration of samba as defining norms of female sexuality.
