"Cruzamentos "features 35 artists, working across all genres, who reflect the vibrant artistic scene currently flourishing throughout Brazil. Many of the artists are emerging or mid-career and, with very few exceptions, have not been widely (or ever) exhibited in the US. "Cruzamentos" translates literally as "crossings" or '"intersections," but in Brazil it also refers to the mixing of cultures that renders the country so distinctive. "Cruzamentos" extends that metaphor to contemporary art, focusing on artists whose practices are as varied as the country itself. Although a handful of postwar Brazilian visual artists have received recognition in North America, the astonishingly high level of artistic production throughout Brazil over recent decades remains significantly overlooked beyond its borders. Among the artists included are Marcio Almeida, Jonathas de Andrade, Laura Belem, Tatiana Blass, Jose Damasceno, Cia de Foto, Dias & Riedweg, Marcius Galan, Fernanda Gomes, Jac Leirner, Cristiano Lenhardt, Cinthia Marcelle, Beatriz Milhazes, Regina Silveira, Adriana Varejao and Marcia Xavier.
