New York Brazilians and Brazilophiles Gather to Celebrate the Successful Art Exhibition “Tropicália: A Revolution in Brazilian Culture”
“The Consul General of Brazil José Alfredo Graça Lima and his wife Marisa rolled out the red carpet at the Brazilian Ambassador’s Residence to welcome the friends of the Bronx Museum of the Arts and celebrate their wildly successful show Tropicália: A Revolution in Brazilian Culture.”The exhibit opened last month when Mayor Bloomberg cut the ribbon on the museum’s new $19 million building. “The Bronx Museum of the Arts has put the “grand” back in the “Grand Concourse.” he said.

“Tropicália, curated by Carlos Basualdo and Lydia Yee, is the first comprehensive exhibition exploring one of the most significant chapters in the world’s modern cultural history. It was the late 1960s, when daring experiments in Brazilian art, music, film, architecture and theater converged under the leadership of well known pop stars Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil.The Tropicália moment produced a counterculture that has influenced generations of artists up to the present day including David Byrne.

“The reception complete with Brazilian hors d’oeuvres and cocktails was organized by Michèle Gerber Klein and Alina Slonim. The drinks made with caçacha (described by natives as a wild mix of tequila and rum made from the heart of the sugar cane plant) was provided by Beleza Brazil, represented by Olie and Marcia Berlic.”
