artist nominated by ROBERTA TENCONI


PAULO NAZARETH

1977 · GOVERNADOR VALADARES

Paulo Nazareth is a Brazilian artist who works in a favela near Belo Horizonte, engaging his art with the complicated past and present of his native Brazil. His subjects are often related to race, ideology and the unequal distribution of development and are consistently underpinned by a categorical vision of ethical life itself. In his art practice, that is both interdisciplinary and participatory, he embodies the idea of the artist as a sort of connector, a performative decoder or a kind of philosopher.
