Terras em trânsito embarks on a journey in video through Brazil’s complex social fabric and visual culture. Designed for adventurous travelers, two excursions explore the ongoing dialogue between contemporary art and the rich history of Brazil’s avant-gardes, and chart a network of less-traveled roads. Before each excursion, four Connecting Flights offer live and multi-channel video performances that take us from Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo to Japan, Cuba, and New York.
Monkeytown is a singular new addition to New York’s video/performance scene. In this intimate environment (attendance is limited to 32 for each presentation), synchronized and multi-channel video works are projected on four surrounding screens/walls, creating an immersive, communal environment. Spectators lounge on low futons below each screen, and experimental cuisine, caipirinhas, and other libations complete the sensorial experience.The premiere US exhibition of Terras em trânsito was curated by Karyn Riegel and is presented in association with Cinema Tropical. Generous support and caipirinhas have been provided by Beleza Pura® Premium Cachaça.

EACH EXCURSION & CONNECTING FLIGHTS DEPART 2 TIMES EACH NIGHT

Serious, Serious, Serious - MARCOS CHAVES
Until death stops you being serious.” -Francis Picabia, Cannibal Dada Manifesto.
Marcos Chaves invites us for a live, multi-image romp in a conceptual playground of his recent videos, photography, and performance.

Excursion 2: A Useful Landscape
From intimacy in São Paulo’s urban jungle to the cutting edge of technology in Brazil’s interior, the topography of communication is surveyed in experimental documentaries, the poetics of movement and sound, and displaced livestock. Works by Andre Amparo, Colectivo Bijari, Daniel Lima, Edson Barrus, Nicolas Guagnini & Karin Schneider, Lucas Bambozzi, Marepe, Marssares, Rachel Rosalen, and Tetine.
