Valeska Soares at Estação Pinacoteca – São Paulo


Only one week left to visit Brazilian artist Valeska Soares’ solo exhibition at Estação Pinacoteca in São Paulo (closing date is 22nd October).

The remarkable exhibition is curated by Júlia Rebouças and includes works from the 80s to the present day (including her beginnings in NY where she still lives) which explore her central themes including memory, emotions, body and the relations between space, time and language. Her work transcends the boundaries of memory and fiction. Her pieces consider both contextual history and spatial constructs.

Primary interested in architecture, form, and using sculpture as a preferable medium in her oeuvre, Soares’ work has been displayed in various contexts, reinforcing the globalized art world’s conversations of geography, cultural and national identity, discipline, and form. More timely than ever, her work has been included in numerous biennials including the São Paulo Biennial (1994, 1998, and 2009); Venice Biennale (2005); and Sharjah Biennial, United Arab Emirates (2009).
