Blum & Poe is pleased to present Visions of Brazil: Reimagining Modernity from Tarsila to Sonia, curated by Sofia Gotti, hosted in collaboration with Mendes Wood DM. Following a tradition of championing critical reassessments of historical art movements beginning with Mono-ha with curator Mika Yoshitake, then Dansaekhwa curated by Joan Kee, and CoBrA with curator Alison M. Gingeras, to 1980s and 1990s Japan again with Yoshitake, Blum & Poe focuses on a revised Modernist narrative of Brazil. This exhibition gathers works that together span almost a century of Brazilian art, from Modernism to the present day. A panel discussion on the occasion of the exhibition will be held at the Americas Society on Thursday, May 2 at 6pm, with Sofia Gotti and curators Gabriela Rangel (Americas Society) and Sergio Bessa (Bronx Museum), and with contributions by Kiki Mazzucchelli and Sergio Martins.
