Videobrasil Collection at Marker Art Dubai

Renowned Brazilian and Lebanese artists featured in Videobrasil Collection exhibit Art Dubai's Marker section 2015.
Mar 2015

Associação Cultural Videobrasil will be featured in the Marker 2015 curated section of the Art Dubai fair, with a selection of artworks from its collection. From March 17 to 21, thirteen pieces by artists from Brazil and Lebanon, shown during the latest editions of the Contemporary Art Festival Sesc_Videobrasil, will be exhibited as part of the Videobrasil Collection at Marker Art Dubai program. The videos selected for Marker 2015 attest to the relevance of the Festival, the Videobrasil Collection and the artists that have built Videobrasil’s history.

The program includes renowned Brazilian artists such as Caetano Dias, Cao Guimarães, Eder Santos, Nuno Ramos, Paulo Climachauska and Tatiana Blass. Promising up-and-coming artists like Cinthia Marcelle and Guilherme Peters are also featured. One day will be devoted exclusively to work by prominent Lebanese artists such as Akram Zaatari, Ali Cherri, Mounira Al Solh and Ziad Antar. Lebanon is part of the Festival’s history and has played a key role in Videobrasil’s entry and access to the Middle East, ever since the Festival went global in the 1990s.

Currently in its ninth edition, Art Dubai is turning its attention to productions from Latin America. Curated by Luiza Teixeira de Freitas, Marker 2015 will explore the artistic commonalities and connections between Latin America and the Arab World, in view of their shared background in migration and trade. For the first time ever, Marker is taking a multidisciplinary approach comprising a group exhibit, artists’ books, performance and sound projects, plus the video program built from the Videobrasil Collection at the curator’s invitation.
