On November 4, Saturday, Thiago Martins de Melo (1981, São Luís, Brazil) opens his solo exhibition Resistência [Resistance], at Fundação Iberê Camargo, in Porto Alegre. Gunnar B. Kvaran curates the exhibition and writes a comprehensive essay for its catalog.

As Kvaran explains, "the exhibition is presented in two parts. First, there are paintings that denounce certain events and policies in Brazil. In the second - appeasement - there are paintings in which the artist explores existential questions related to mythology and metaphysics." Thus, the exhibition constitutes an overview of the artist's production in recent years.

Resistência is on view from October 29 to January 2024. Learn more.
