Irmandade

November 9, 2023 @ 12:00 pm

Event Admission

Free Admission

Nascimento is an Afro-Brazilian artist from the Recôncavo region of Bahia, who has moved to Houston and continues his artist-activist links to the defense of indigenous rights in Brazil. His work has been exhibited in Brazil and the United States.
This exhibition illustrates the bond of kinship between brothers, sisters and the deeper connection between diverse people. Irmandade is the Portuguese word for brotherhood, the bond of kinship.

Using the lines of thread as an analogy for connection and reconnection, the artist connects each canvas with red thread. On the canvases are images of Black people connected to each other by blood and ancestry. Sometimes these threads signify a search for something deeper, perhaps belonging, self, a lost connection or a confirmation of the existence of this concept.
