Braziliality is a not-for-profit cross-cultural project, showcasing artwork by Brazilian artists and international artists inspired by Brazil, creating a 360-degree perspective of the influence of contemporary Brazilian art and culture around the globe. Our mission is to support new art, particularly art with technology, and new talent inspired by Brazil.
Braziliality started in July 2008 and with almost three years, we have presented the work of 147 artists from 24 countries had had their work showcased in 28 exhibitions that attracted over 1,595 people to private viewings. More than 8,160 people have seen the Braziliality exhibitions. In these three years, Braziliality will have worked in partnership with The Brazilian Embassy in London, Forman’s Smokehouse Gallery, Made in Brasil Bar, Jungle Drums Magazine, Leros Magazine, Record Television, Canal Londres, Latin America Bureau, ABC Trust, Visual Brasil Festival in Barcelona, Deslocamentos in Berlin, Fourth Plinth Pedal Power project, Planarama, Abelha Cachaca and Favela Chic and we hope to be working with many more interesting people, business and organizations in the future.
Braziliality is opening a new membership scheme for artists, offering tailored consultancy for their international careers, informing them about jobs and bringing them news of relevant art events. Braziliality produces art shows, networking events, exhibitions and festivals working together with Brazilian organizations and events in Europe.
The project was created by Alicia Bastos and now partnering with Bianca Turner as a production specialist and it benefits from the curatorial knowledge of Pier Tosta.
