    Adriana Varejao

    The ICA presents the first U.S. solo presentation of work by Adriana Varejão, one of the leading voices in contemporary Brazilian art. Varejão’s work mines the history of Brazil referencing the history of art, architectural ruins, Baroque church interiors, Portuguese azulejos (blue and white ceramic tiles), scenes of colonialism, and Brazilian indigenous paganism. The exhibition features a selection of works made from 1993 to the present—including early paintings, floor and wall-based sculptural works, installations, and work from Polvo, a recent series of self-portraits highlighting the spectrum of interracial identity in Brazil. The exhibition traces the artist’s exploration of the effects of colonialism through the lens of anthropophagy, the concept that Brazilian culture was developed through a process of ‘devouring’ and reinterpreting the symbolic and cultural contributions of its colonizers.
