Phoenix Art Museum’s exhibition “Past/Future/Present: Contemporary Brazilian Art from the Museum of Modern Art, São Paulo” presents a rare panorama of the most innovative art produced in Brazil from the 1990s to the 2010s. The exhibition will be the first major presentation of artworks from the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, São Paulo (MAM-SP) in the United States. The show will feature 70 artworks created by 59 artists in diverse media, including painting, sculpture, installation, photography and video.

The exhibition is organized around five disparate but interconnected themes: The Body/The Social Body; Shifting Identities; The Reinvention of the Monochrome; Landscape, Reimagined; and Impossible Objects. These thematic nuclei have porous boundaries that enable visitors to chart their own paths. The works range from small objects to monumental installations, each unique in scope and subject matter.
