Currently presented at the Astrup Fearnley Museet in Oslo (Norway), Imagine Brazil is a snapshot of Brazilian contemporary art. The exhibition presents fourteen young and most creative artists of the emerging scene of Brazil and who, for most of them, already have an international career. In their turn, each of them has been invited to select a Brazilian artist, considered to him as a reference in Brazilian contemporary art.

From 5 June to 17 August, 2014, the Musée d’art contemporain de Lyon hosts the exhibition Imagine Brazil. Designed in collaboration with London and Oslo, this exhibition brings together 14 young artists who are amongst the most creative of Brazil’s emerging contemporary art scene. Each of these 14 young artists was asked, in turn, to invite an established artist whom they considered to be a reference or someone whose work was similar to their own and to whom they wished to pay tribute. Therefore, Imagine Brazil exhibits the work of 27 artists in total (one ‘established’ artist was selected twice).
In Imagine Brazil there is also ‘an exhibition within an exhibition’ devoted to artists’ books, as these play an important and unique role in Brazilian art today. This part of the exhibition was entrusted to Jacopo Crivelli Visconti and Ana Luiza Fonseca.
After Oslo and Lyon, the exhibition Imagine Brazil will travel to Brazil, Argentina and Canada
