Cross Polinization: Emerging Artists in Contemporary Brazilian Printmaking
Panellists Professor Isabela Prado, Professor Maria do Carmo Veneroso


We live in a global economy as well as global art community.

Brazil is an important emerging power both economically and been so culturally many years: Sao Paulo Biennale. Brazil is a very rich and true melting pot of European, African, Latin, and Asian ethnicities and cultures.

We will discuss and illustrate the above in a related themed portfolio of Brazilian emerging and post-graduate artists who represent this new paradigm in art and culture.

We will first discuss printmaking activities in Brazil; the role played by the Universities' art schools in its development, showing current trends in Brazilian printmaking and demonstrating how young artists/printmakers are being educated. We will use The School of Art at UFMG as an example, noting similarities and differences between their practice and that of North America, Europe and Australia. 

Panelist Maria do Carmo Freitas Veneroso conducted extensive research into this topic . Isabela Prado represents the current generation of Brazilian artists practicing today.
