Rosana Paulino: Red Atlantic

Galeria Superfície

16 Jun 201616 Jul 2016

Galeria Superfície presents “Red Atlantic”, a solo exhibition by Rosana Paulino. The show derives from the extensive research carried out by the artist, both in academia and in the field of visual arts, on social, ethnic and gender issues, especially about the position of blackness and black women in Brazilian society. For her exhibition at the gallery, the artist displays a set of drawings and works on fabric that challenge traditional notions of history and hierarchy of artistic genres. The artist appropriates everyday elements and practices historically associated with the female universe, such as the textile art, and subverts them, imputing elements of violence that break with the notion of docility and passivity associated to them. These elements unveil the problem of black condition in today’s society, reverberate marks of an unresolved past, and add to the body of work of the artist who is at the same time, poetic, autobiographical and social.

 
Since the beginning of her career, Rosana Paulino (São Paulo, 1967) has stood out for her production linked to social, ethnic and gender issues. Her works are focused primarily on the position of the black and mainly black women in Brazilian society. The artist has works in major museums and has actively participated in several exhibitions in Brazil and abroad.
In 1998, she travels to London with a Brazilian government scholarship for specialization in printmaking at the London Print Studio and is currently a doctoral student in Visual Poetics at Escola de Comunicações e Artes (ECA-USP). She also received a scholarship of the Ford Foundation Grant Program from 2006 to 2008.
