SAPHIRA STUDIOSEIGREENIAC - International Artists Coalition, in partnership with Mali Villas–Bôas Gallery, present the Exhibition Contemporary Brazil & Baroque Roots. Support: IPL (Institute of Portuguese Language & Portuguese Language Club at UN).

The exhibitiont discloses Brazilian art through a collective exhibition of visual arts. The artists selected are representatives of Brazilian contemporary art, which has been increasingly highlighted in the international art market due to its unique features. The exhibition will provide the opportunity to meet some aspects of the current Brazilian art and its Baroque influence.

Baroque’s ideas permeate the work of many artists today, revealing that the style is one of the most influential movements in Brazilian art. One could say that Baroque is the root of all art movements in Brazil from the sculptures by Antonio Francisco Lisboa ( known as Aleijadinho) to the architecture of Oscar Niemeyer; from the musical works by Padre José Maurício Nunes Garcia to Villa-Lobos and Milton Nascimento; from the poetry of Gregório de Mattos and Padre Antonio Vieira to Carlos Drummond de Andrade;  from the paitings by Manoel da Costa Ataide to the new trends in Brazilian visual arts.

The artists selected and produced by curators Alcinda Saphira (NY)Antonio Oliveira (NY), andMali Villas-Boas (Brazil), show in their works the cultural diversity of a continental country united by its Baroque roots.
