With the support of the project Latitude – Platform for Brazilian Art Galleries Abroad, an ABACT partnership (Brazilian Association of Contemporary Art) and Apex-Brasil (Brazilian Agency for Export and Investment Promotion), to Galeria Nara Roesler is one of the representatives of Brazil among the 80 galleries that will participate in the EXPO CHGO ONLINE, international contemporary and modern art fair, that takes place in virtual format 08 to 12 April.
“At a time when the online environment becomes an essential route for contact with the international public, the support of the Latitude Project for galleries is fundamental. Not only regarding participation in fairs and online platforms, but also with regard to disclosure to the international press. Being part of an internationalization project in times like the ones we are experiencing is something that favors and strengthens the galleries as a whole”, says Alexandre Roesler, director of Galeria Nara Roesler.
With the exhibition ‘Sweet Spontaneous Earth’ (Sweet and Spontaneous Earth), the gallery will present several works at the event that portray nature as something that is always evolving, that is indecipherable and of indomitable strength. The exhibition is inspired by the eponymous poem by E.E Cummings and aims to bring a reflection to the viewer of the benefits of slowing down through the greatness of nature: stop and watch, hear, breathe. The chosen works have precisely this effect, capturing and contemplating the admiration, in moments when we were amazed at the overwhelming nature of our planet.
Several artists participate in the exhibition: Alberto Baraya, Amelia Toledo, Brígida Baltar, Cássio Vasconcellos, Cristina Channel, Isaac julien, Karin Lambrecht, Marcelo Silveira, Marcos Chaves, Paulo Bruscky and Evgen Bavcar, Tomie Ohtake and Vic Muniz.
