This summer, Somerset House and Casa Brasil, home of the Brazilian Olympic Committee and Rio 2016 during the London 2012 Games, host an exhibition of contemporary Brazilian art and design.
The exhibition showcases 33 artists and designers, featuring both emerging and established names from each of Brazil’s regions to represent the art scene across the country.
Curated by Brazilian art historian Rafael Cardoso and designed by scenographers Daniela Thomas and Felipe Tassara for Somerset House’s Embankment Galleries, all of the works have been created in the past ten years and cover the country’s contemporary output in all its forms including installation pieces, painting, photography, video and sculpture.
The exhibition has been specially commissioned by Rio 2016™ exclusively for Casa Brasil at Somerset House.
