January 15, 10am–12pm

USF Marshall Student Center (MSC2709)

Event is free. Light morning refreshments will be served. Sign Language Interpreter will be present.

Brazilian artists Sandra Cinto and Caio Reisewitz will join USFCAM curator Noel Smith in a discussion of the exhibitions Historias / Histories: Contemporary Art from Brazil and Sandra Cinto: Chance and Necessity installed at USF Contemporary Art Museum.


January 15, 7-9pm

USF Contemporary Art Museum

Histórias will showcase works by Jonathas de Andrade, Sonia Gomes, Virginia de Medeiros, Caio Reisewitz, and Luiz Zerbini, whose approaches address the varied histories of Brazil, some collective, some individual, but all rooted in reflections on the country’s complicated past and present, and vast geographical, racial, and cultural wealth and diversity.  
São Paulo-based artist Sandra Cinto will design a site-specific installation for CAM’s West Gallery. Cinto is known for her dramatic scenarios incorporating water, the night sky and billowing seas, that transform exhibition spaces into places of meditation on the passing of time and the relationship of humans to nature.  

Curated by USFCAM Curator Noel Smith, with Dr. Agnaldo Farias, University of São Paulo; organized by USF Contemporary Art Museum. Exhibition sponsored in part by a grant from the Arts Council of Hillsborough County and the Board of Hillsborough County Commissioners, the USF Institute for the Study of Latin America and the Caribbean, USF World, and The Gobioff Foundation.

Exhibition Dates: January 15 – March 5, 2016 at USF Contemporary Art Museum
