Tiago Carneiro da Cunha “Green Galaxy”

2022. 11. 12 Sat - 12. 11 Sun

MISAKO & ROSEN is pleased to announce the debut solo exhibition in Tokyo of Brazilian artist, Tiago Carneiro da Cunha. Da Cunha considers both the over (sunbathers) and under (beggars) sexualized bodies of his local context and lore in an exaggerated manner and within the greater context of a landscape (world) heading towards apocalypse; seduction and desire are subverted by an overblown sense of cataclysm represented by both human and other natural (trees, ocean waves, the sun) forms heavily painted in colors at once alluring and lurid.

Da Cunha’s work has been exhibited at institutions including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro, as well as within the 30th São Paulo Art Biennial. MISAKO & ROSEN previously presented Da Cunha’s work in a two-person exhibition, together with fellow Brazilian artist, Erika Verzutti.
