Cruzamentos features 35 artists, working across all genres, who reflect the vibrant
artistic scene currently flourishing throughout Brazil. Many of the artists are emerging
or mid-career and, with very few exceptions, have not been widely (or ever) exhibited in
the US. "Cruzamentos" translates literally as "crossings" or '"intersections," but in Brazil
it also refers to the mixing of cultures that renders the country so distinctive.
Cruzamentos extends that metaphor to contemporary art, focusing on artists whose
practices are as varied as the country itself. Although a handful of postwar Brazilian
visual artists have received recognition in North America, the astonishingly high level of
artistic production throughout Brazil over recent decades remains significantly
overlooked beyond its borders. Among the artists included are M rcio Almeida, Jonathas
de Andrade, Laura Bel m, Tatiana Blass, Jos Damasceno, Cia de Foto, Dias & Riedweg,
Marcius Galan, Fernanda Gomes, Jac Leirner, Cristiano Lenhardt, Cinthia Marcelle,
Beatriz Milhazes, Regina Silveira, Adriana Varej o and Marcia Xavier.
