The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago presents Jonathas de Andrade: One to One.
At once intimate and historical, the work of Brazilian artist Jonathas de Andrade evokes love, memory, and place. His photographs, installations, and videos often respond to the geography and culture surrounding Recife, the city in the northeast region of Brazil in which he lives and works. He grapples in particular with the promises, failures, and inequities in Brazil’s Nordeste as the region undergoes rapid and often rocky urbanization.
The exhibition debuts three new works, including Jogos dirigidos (Directed games), a film commissioned by the MCA that presents a playful exchange between members of the deaf community in the northeast of Brazil.
The exhibition is curated by José Esparza Chong Cuy, former Pamela Alper Associate Curator, with Nina Wexelblatt, Curatorial Assistant. It is presented in the Bergman Family Gallery on the museum’s second floor.
