DESCRIPTION

Cantos Cuentos Colombianos is one of the most extensive selections of contemporary art from Colombia to be presented in Brazil.

The oeuvre of ten renowned artists reveals a hitherto unknown world of images and experiences, which begs comparison with any other international art.

Showing a compelling rigor in both form and content, these mature artists approach their own country and its turbulent history and present from a surprising diversity of angles. The richness of their artistic signatures is mirrored in the broad range of chosen media. The exhibition shows installations, videos, photographs, objects, performances and sound pieces from the holdings of the Daros Latinamerica Collection.
