Brasil / Brazil is an exhibition about how Brasilians and Americans see Brazil. However, artworks from other countries are included to amplify the theme of the exhibition which is how Brazil is viewed by artists with very specific viewpoints in search of specifically chosen subjects —-even an ‘agenda.’ Ancillary texts, open books and brochures support the exhibition. The subject matter ranges from paradaisal views of the land to politically charged interpretations of landscape; to commentaries on religion; the impact of African art on contemporary form; and the legacy of slavery.

J. M. Rugendas, The Bush Captain, “O Capitao Do Mato”

On display are twenty works of photography, paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures by fifteen artists, all of whom have spent considerable time in both countries. However, the show has been put together based on readily available material and its ease of transport within the means of a small independently operated historic house museum; thus there may be subjects missing that the viewer may have wished to see.

Also on view are over 300 works of classical African art, contemporary art, east Asian art on paper from the permanent collection.
