Gallery 1957 congratulates Gustavo Nazareno for his coming group exhibition on 19th November 2022 at the Inhotim Institution in Brumadinho, Minas Gerais , Brazil: Quilombo: Life, problems and aspirations of the Black people.
Directly alluding to the name of the newspaper, the exhibition, on view at the Lago Gallery, is divided into five sections (New power: reformulating a vanguard; Public lives; Life and aspirations of the black people; The women speak; and Rewriting history: building and affirming identity), which establish a dialogue with themes present in the Quilombo, such as issues of representation and identity of the Black figure in the society of the time, and relate them to the contemporary production of both male and female Brazilian artists.
