Art Talk: Depicting Blackness: The Politics of Race in Afro-Brazilian Art
June 30, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Brazil is a rich tapestry of syncretic cultural identities and is home to the second-largest Afro-descendent population in the world. This art talk charts the history of racial politics in Brazil and visual representations of Blackness—from the trans-Atlantic slave trade and whitening campaigns at the turn of the twentieth century to artistic modes of resistance and the founding of São Paulo’s Museu Afro Brasil in 2004.
Join us on Thursday, June 30th
6 pm to 7:30 pm
