The Hand Of The Brazilian People, 1969/2016

Museu de Arte de São Paulo Assis Chateaubriand – MASP

02 Sep 201629 Jan 2017

“The Hand of the Brazilian People” at MASP presents a vast panorama of the rich material culture of Brazil: around a thousand objects, including figureheads, votive figures, textiles, garments, furniture, tools, utensils, machinery, musical instruments, ornaments, toys, religious objects, paintings, and sculptures. The central question posed by the exhibition is: in which way can the histories of art and culture in Brazil be reconstructed, recollected, and reconfigured beyond the mores, tastes, and protocols of the dominant classes?
