Opening Reception – Bandits & Heroes, Poets & Saints: Popular Art of the Northeast of Brazil @ Bertha V.B. Lederer Gallery at SUNY Geneseo
Sep 5 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Exhibition Dates: September 5 – October 19, 2018
• Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 5, 5-7 PM
• Curator’s Talk at 5:45 PM

Bandits & Heroes, Poets & Saints explores how the ancient cultures of Africa blended with indigenous and colonial Portuguese traditions to form the vibrant and complex cultural mosaic of modern Brazil. Engaging photographs and works of popular art, including sculptures, paintings, prints, religious objects, toys, and booklets of poetry will draw visitors into the complex and vibrant culture of the Northeast of Brazil and introduce the festivals, heroes, and spiritual traditions that give shape and meaning to the daily lives of the Nordestinos, common people of Brazil’s Northeast. The exhibition explores how diverse traditions come together in the region and uses work by historical and contemporary artists to illuminate a fascinating history that reaches into modern Brazil.

Bandits & Heroes, Poets & Saints: Popular Art of the Northeast of Brazil was curated by Marion E. Jackson, Ph.D. and Barbara Cervenka, O.P., Curators, Con/Vida–Popular Arts of the Americas, and organized by Con/Vida–Popular Arts of the Americas and the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, Detroit, MI, in partnership with NEH on the Road/Mid-America Arts Alliance, Kansas City, MO.

Exhibitions are free and open to the public. We look forward to your visit to the gallery.
