7SP – Seven Artists From Sao Paulo

April 21 – June 6, 2012
CAB – Contemporary Art Brussels, Belgium

For the past decade São Paulo has become a thriving economic and cultural centre of Brazil and as such attracts a growing number of Brazilian artists, gallery owners and collectors while also encouraging new platforms dedicated to artistic expression including the Biennial SP Art Fair.

The 7SP exhibition presents seven artists who all work and live in São Paulo; Sandra Cinto, Albano Afonso and Paulo Climachauska belong to the 90’s generation and have participated in some of the most important exhibitions presented in Brazil in recent years, including the Biennial de São Paulo and Panorama da Arte Brasileira. Ana Elisa Egreja, Rodrigo Bivar and Rafael Carneiro belong to a younger generation of painters which reintroduced figurative painting to the local art scene and are experiencing huge success in Brazil at the moment. Wagner Malta Tavares belongs to the 90’s generation but started working in the art field recently through art installations.

This project proposes three in-situ creations by Sandra Cinto, Albano Afonso and Paulo Climachauska, as well as a selection of the most recent works by some artists of the new painting generation and a video installation.All seven artists share an international point of view produced with a Brazilian flavor. They all reflect the concerns of Brazilians today, including future of the natural beauties of the country and the uncertainty of the future in a country full of contradictions.Where do we come from ? What are we doing ? Where are we going? These are common questions the whole world over, but the difference is that these artists are raising these questions in a country considered emergent with a whole future ahead of them.
