Braziliarty presents here, a hand picked collection of our most important activities amongst over its over 60 projects, to show you what we can do and how we keep growing since ‘Braziliality’ times:
In 2016 Braziliarty was invited to co-curate the Festival of Brasil at the Horniman Museum and it has presented the work of Brazilian street artists Binho Ribeiro, Milo Tchais and Ananda Nahu. Braziliarty also curated the wildlife photography exhibition ‘Faura Brazil’ by João Marcos Rosa.
Braziliarty and Pigment worked together for two years producing LATA Street Culture Festival brining the work of several Brazilian street artists to London, more specifically to the Red Gallery in Shoreditch. Activities included an exhibition, live painting, film screening, workshops and a party. In 2016 we had a talk with the artists at the Brazilian Embassy and the curator and researcher Dr. Chandra Morrison. In these two years 10 artists took part of the festival.
During the World Cup and against the violation of human rights in Brazil, Manifest-Action presented 16 photographs about the reality of certain issues in Brazil such as evictions, protests, overcrowd prisons, violence and indigenous causes. The event also included film screenings and in London included a debate with academics specialised in the topics and a major journalist charing the session. Manifest – Action Brazil is a show of interest of other European Countries and this is our first touring show.
Braziliarty was invite to co-curate the Science Museum LATES Brazil: science, samba and football, presenting eight attractions from Sci-fi Capoeira, Electrifying Brazil about the electronic music years talk, to Cachaça Alchemy: The Brazilian spirit, Fit for Samba, Sweet Biofuel , Biodiversity Barcodes, GM crops, trees, insects in Brazil and beating infectious diseases. Around 3200 attended the night, and enjoyed the over 30 activities going on. Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. Over set was for him own gathering for form forth Blessed also shall and, moved together it earth be.
Braziliarty was invited to take part at the Late & V&A Hot Brazil, being commissioned to design an installation created by Alicia Bastos & Bianca Turner displayed in the main foyer of the museum for the night, and to produce an interactive live soap opera experience for the audience. A night that broke records of attendance at the Late events, with around 5,000 people, had a brilliant mix of varied attractions, form caipirinha to digital art.
During the month of August, enjoying the hot summer, Braziliality showcased a month long festival including the work of over 40 artists in one exhibition, film screenings, live performances, debates and a large scale commissioned work. The show was about art from and of the streets, bringing graffiti, illustration, graphic design, photography, video art, sculptures, installations and live art and music performances to Forman’s Smokehouse Gallery, in front of the Olympic Stadium in Hackney Wick. Over 3000 people attended the main opening weekend, when a large celebration took place along the Hackney Wicked Festival.
