Monday 5th February – Sunday 18th February 2018

Tres Brazilian Cultural Centre is delighted to have the opportunity to hold their first group exhibition in the Signal Arts Centre, Bray.

‘Facets of Brazil’ is an art project developed by the Brazilian photographer and entrepreneur Elis Taves O’Sullivan. Taves is the creative director for the Tres Brazilian Cultural Centre. She envisions showcasing a number of Brazilian visual artists’ exhibitions around Ireland over the coming years. Tres BCC represented the work of Claudia Coutinho, a Brazilian artist who had her first solo exhibition recently in Dublin at The Athena Room@Sol Art.

For this first group exhibition, the curatorial process will focus on the individual practices and techniques rather than the existentialism of each story behind the artist’s life and experience. The artists will be free to showcase their work, expressing the Brazilian culture in their own individual styles.

‘Facets of Brazil’ will put emphasis on the diversity of work produced through multiple media types with works from photographers, painters, illustrators, sculptors, etc. Visitors will have the chance to appreciate contemporary and genuine Brazilian art, showcasing one style to another and one region of Brazil to another. The body of work to be displayed is a small sample of the many variations of different shades, tones, marks and colours spread across multiple creative contemporaneous artwork throughout the Brazilian art world.

Artists in Conversation

As part of the art educational programme of the Tres BCC, a series of talks will be organised during the exhibition.

Friday 9th February 3pm - 4pm. Tickets are free but limited. Advance Booking required: facetsofbrazil@gmail.com

Tres BCC is already known for organising events such as "Brazil Meets Bray" and has been participating in the annual Culture night programme since 2016; all of these events specifically target the local community. The aim of the Centre is to showcase Brazilian culture to a multicultural audience, as Ireland is portrayed today.

Opening Reception: Sunday 11th February 3 - 5 pm

All Welcome!
