21.05.2016 - 28.08.2016
Arthur Scovino, avaf and Sandra Cinto take part in the exhibition Soft Power. Arte Brasil. at the Kunsthal KAdE, in Amersfoort, Holland.
This summer Kunsthal KAdE presents Soft Power. Arte Brasil. – a major exhibition featuring a range of 35 contemporary Brazilian artists and artists’ groups working on issues currently facing their country. The exhibition is prompted by the prospect of the Rio Olympics: the second global sporting event to be hosted by Brazil within a few years, following the FIFA World Cup in 2014. In Soft Power. Arte Brasil., Kunsthal KAdE asks what sort of country chooses to showcase itself in this way. Part of the answer to that question can be found in the work of the visual artists and artist collectives currently active in Brazil. Their art addresses a wide variety of issues, from the position of indigenous peoples in the north of the country to the water shortages in São Paolo and government economic policies.
