So Much that it Doesn't fit Here

Brazil - Biennale Arte 2015

Brazilian Pavilion - 56th Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia 

The selection of artists featured in the Pavilion of Brazil at the 56th Biennale Arte 2015 is based on the main criteria of the relevance of their poetics in the contemporary arts scene and, at the same time, their place in the history, not just of art, but of Brazil's conflicted society. According to the curators, “faced with the dictatorship in the late 1960s, some  artists were forced into a kind of activism in which conceptual strategies were  aligned with material precariousness and corporal fragility. The title of the exhibition, “So much that it doesn't fit here” was inspired by the  signs seen in demonstrations which took place in Brazil's capital cities in June of 2013. Direct contact with the streets is also something shared by the three artists.
