In Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the exhibition is presented under the title "A Carta da Jamaica" (Letter from Jamaica). It refers to the famous letter written by Simón Bolívar (1793 - 1830) in 1815 during his exile in Jamaica, as a response to Henry Cullen, a British resident on the island. This letter, written in English, is considered one of the most important political statements in the history of Latin America.

The main exhibition venue is Centro Cultural Oi Futuro, and works of four artists will be presented at Museu da Maré.
