Artist's Talk with Jonathas de Andrade
Moderated by co-curator Silvia Alencar
Sunday, March 11, 2018, 3–4:30pm
Organized in conjunction with the exhibition Copy, Translate, Repeat: Contemporary Art from the Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros
Jonathas de Andrade works with installations, photography and video to explore the borders between fact and fiction. Though de Andrade usually works with local subjects from the northeast region of Brazil, the cross-cultural references used in his works highlight power imbalances present in historical narratives.
De Andrade has exhibited at the Mercosul Biennial, Porto Alegre (2009); Instituto Cultural Banco Real, Recife (2009); Centro Cultural São Paulo (2010); Museu de Arte Contemporânea de São Paulo (2010); New Museum Triennial, New York (2011); 29th São Paulo Biennial (2011), Istanbul Biennial (2011); Kunsthalle Lissabon, Lisbon (2013); Musée d’art Contemporain de Montréal (2013); Museu de Arte do Rio (2014–15); Museu de Arte de São Paulo (2016–17); The Power Plant, Toronto (2017); New Museum, New York (2017). He lives and works in Recife, Brazil.
