The Role of Image

Curated by Paula Terra Neale

Part I : 8– 24 June 2017

Part II: 9 – 19 August 2017

A two part show investigating the role of the image in contemporary art.

13 artists all originally from Rio de Janeiro, each investigate this theme in a different way: by acknowledging its role, or rejecting it; by recording their performance pieces, or reflecting aspects of daily life in Rio; as a language, or a tool for philosophical reasoning; through research into new media and processes.
