Looking for Brazil in Chelsea

This month, Chelsea is ripe with Brazilian art!

At Tanya Bonakdar Gallery, Ricardo Basbaum, Carlos Contente, Laura Lima, Maria Nepomuceno, and Thiago Rocha Pitta, five artists from A Gentil Carioca gallery in Rio de Janeiro (which I had the pleasure to visit and wrote about here) are part of a terrific group show.

Also at Tanya Bonakdar, gallery-represented Sandra Cinto is showing new works and a site-specific installation.

Since last August, P.S. 11 has been home to a public mural by Os Gêmeos.

And 1500 Gallery, a relative newcomer to the neighborhood, specializes in Brazilian photography. Vale a visita!
