Curated by Paulo Miyada and Alberto Saraiva.
Considered one of the most important artists in Brazil, Miguel Rio Branco has his career marked by his work as a photographer, filmmaker and creator of audiovisual installations, with numerous national and international awards. His training as a painter and the defiant attitude to every photographic canon also led him to become singular in contemporary Brazilian art through the pioneering of his installations and photographs. Part of his work can be seen at his pavilion inaugurated in Inhotim (MG) in 2010.
In this exhibition, in Oi Futuro, the artist presents in various medias, including photography, audiovisual installation and immersive installation, with his concerns about the limits of the ideal of civilization that still guides life in the big cities. Restless and critical, Miguel has been questioning about the signs of bankruptcy of contemporary life and the possible alternatives for the life of the planet; a concern that he translates into synesthetic and striking works that bring us closer to the ashes generated by the sacrifice and destruction of humanity’s past and future.
