Curated by Eduardo Besen, Rodrigo Naves, Priscila Sacchettin Opening 6-8 pm: March 20, 2014 On view: March 20 - May 23, 2014
International Print Center New Yorkpresents Contemporary Brazilian Printmaking, an exhibition of fine art print projects by over fifteen artists working in Brazil today. It will be on view at 508 West 26th St, 5th Floor, from March 20 - May 23, 2014.
Artists include:Nara Amélia, Mônica Barki, Ernesto Bonato, Ulysses Bôscolo, Marco Buti, Cleiri Cardoso, Helena Freddi, Sheila Goloborotko, Nina Kreis, Kika Levy, Fabricio Lopez, Alberto Martins, Claudio Mubarac, Laertes Ramos, Augusto Sampaio, Alexandre Sequeira, and Lambe-Lambes by Maura de Andrade, Sergio Kal, Mauricio Parra, Regina Pinto, Yili Rojas, and Carlos Henrique Soares.
Employing a wide range of mediums, techniques and styles, the artists featured in the exhibition represent many different aspects of Contemporary Brazilian printmaking. They have been selected by a group of curators, art historians and print specialists working together to identify important trends and achievements in the field of printmaking in contemporary Brazil. For the majority of the artists, this exhibition constitutes the first showing of their work in North America. As such, it offers a long-anticipated opportunity for New York audiences to connect first-hand with Brazilian art today.
Inheriting this tradition, the artists included in Contemporary Brazilian Printmaking resist convention, embracing technical experimentation and representing (in the words of one curator) an intuitive, if sometimes naïve, approach to the genre. This exuberance as reflected in the work of our featured artists will make for an exciting and revealing exhibition. Their techniques range from aquatint, dry point, mezzotint, and woodcut to contemporary photo etching, digital printing, and photo engraving.
Eduardo Besenis co-founder of São Paulo’s Gravura Brasileira Gallery, which contains a collection of more than 3,000 works of modern and contemporary printmaking. It is the only Brazilian exhibition space that we know of dedicated solely to displaying and promoting Brazilian printmaking. With a history of organizing national and international exhibitions for emerging and renowned artists and publishing art books and print portfolios, Gravura Brasileira Gallery has become a focal point of Brazilian printmaking. A recognized authority on Brazilian printmaking, Besen has lectured widely both in Brazil and abroad on the subject. Priscila Sacchettinis assistant curator at São Paolo’s prestigious Instituto Moreira Salles, a cultural organization promoting the development of projects in photography, literature, Brazilian music, and the visual arts. She also contributes to the Itaú Cultural Institute Brazilian Art Encyclopedia, an Internet database used by students and advanced scholars for their research projects. With a Master’s degree from the University of São Paulo, Sacchettin writes about contemporary artists as a member of the Young Critics Group of Centro Universitário Maria Antonia.
Rodrigo Navesis an art critic, art historian, and professor, has been published in numerous Brazilian magazines and newspapers and was editor of the culture supplement Folhetim (in the newspaper Folha de São Paulo). He contributed the preface to the Brazilian editions of Art and Culture by Clement Greenberg and Modern Art by Giulio Carlo Argan. He also has authored many books, including El Greco—Um mundoturvo [El Greco: A Dim World] andA Forma Difícil—Ensaios sobre Arte Brasileira [The Difficult Form: Essays on Brazilian Art].
