The Spring 2016 edition of InsideART focuses on the USFCAM exhibition Histórias/Histories: Contemporary Art from Brazil.
Histórias will showcase works by Jonathas de Andrade, Sonia Gomes, Virginia de Medeiros, Caio Reisewitz, and Luiz Zerbini, whose approaches address the varied histories of Brazil, some collective, some individual, but all rooted in reflections on the country’s complicated past and present, and vast geographical, racial, and cultural wealth and diversity. Curated by USFCAM Curator Noel Smith, with Dr. Agnaldo Farias, University of São Paulo; organized by USF Contemporary Art Museum. Exhibition sponsored in part by a grant from the Arts Council of Hillsborough County and the Board of Hillsborough County Commissioners, the USF Institute for the Study of Latin America and the Caribbean, USF World, and The Gobioff Foundation.
