OSLO.- Astrup Fearnley Museet presents, Imagine Brazil, an exhibition of Brazilian contemporary art, with a particular focus on the young, emerging art scene.

After extensive research, the curators have selected 14 young artists of international significance who are important representatives of the vibrant emerging art scene in Brazil. In order to situate their work in a historical context, each was asked to choose an older artist whom they consider important for Brazilian contemporary art or for their own work, for presentation in an exhibition within the exhibition.

The selected young artists are proposing new artistic languages in order to develop urgent subject matter. They have dived into the multitude of possible media offered by conceptually based works, including painting, sculpture, installation, photography, video and music, using a variety of languages, complex research and experimentation with words, materials and structures to embody their ideas. They also show a strong awareness of social engagement and issues related to political and environmental problems, without ever neglecting the formal aspects that give the work of art its visual impact and originality.

As another exhibition within the exhibition, there is also a presentation of artist’s books – a collaborative art form that has always played an important role in Brazil. Curators of this section are Jacopo Crivelli Visconti and Ana Luiza Fonseca.

Participating artists: Arrigo Barnabé, J. Borges, Sofia Borges, Rodrigo Cass, Adriano Costa, Jonathas de Andrade, Deyson Gilbert, Fernanda Gomes, Marcellvs L, Milton Machado, Montez Magno, Cinthia Marcelle, Maria Martins, Thiago Martins de Melo, Rodrigo Matheus, Cildo Meireles, Pedro Moraleida, Paulo Nazareth, Rivane Neuenschwander, Paulo Nimer Pjota, Sara Ramo, Mayana Redin, Gustavo Speridião, Tunga, Adriana Varejão, Caetano Veloso and Carlos Zilio.
