A Brazil LAB event with Dalton Paula and Lilia M. Schwarcz
Dalton Paula is one of the most prominent Brazilian artists of his generation. Working across painting, photography, and installation art, he explores the exigencies of the Black Atlantic and knowledge production throughout the African diaspora. Dalton Paula’s work is often realized in the form of portraits, paintings on books, and large-scale paintings. His portraiture was featured prominently in “Afro-Brazilian Histories,” a landmark exhibition at the São Paulo Museum of Art and the Tomie Ohtake Institute, and in “Songs for Sabotage,” the fourth New York’s New Museum Triennial. For Dalton Paula, making art is a political act.
Lilia M. Schwarcz is Professor of Anthropology at the University of São Paulo and Visiting Professor at Princeton University. A leading Brazilian public intellectual, Schwarcz has won five Jabuti prizes for her historical, anthropological, and artistic books. She is a curator at the Museu de Arte de São Paulo (MASP) and writes for Brazil’s main media outlets. A Guggenheim and John Carter Brown Library Fellow, Schwarcz was a Visiting Professor at Oxford, Leiden, Brown, and Columbia.
Organized by the Brazil LAB. Co-sponsored by the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, the Program in Latin American Studies, and the Department of Anthropology.
