Modern Mondays: An Evening with Jonathas De Andrade at MoMA

Jonathas De Andrade is a contemporary artist based in Recife, the state capital of Brazil’s northeastern region, a city marked by the contrast between its peasant class and rural traditions, on the one hand, and its status as a quickly developing industrial center and film capital on the other. Working with installation, photography, and video, De Andrade explores the multiple experiences of the city, continuously involving the audience in the process of narrative construction. De Andrade, whose The Uprising (O Levante) is included in the exhibition Unfinished Conversations: New Works from the Collection, will join Thomas J. Lax, Associate Curator in the Museum’s Department of Media and Performance Art, for a discussion about recent and upcoming work.
