Brazil!

With Brazil being chosen to host the 2016 Olympics it’s not surprising that a few exhibitions showcasing Brazilian art have popped up in various locations around the world. This is likely most evident in the Netherlands where multiple exhibitions and other cultural events have been organised. The program features a broad range of art and artists with exhibitions and events taking place in Den Haag, Amersfoort, Rotterdam and Amsterdam.

A number of the art works shown here focus on political and social themes. One of the stand-works, which also ties into the Olympics theme , is none other Lais Myrrha’s Podium for Nobody. It has been included in Brasil, Beleza?! Museum Beelden aan Zee. It conveys a sense of meaningless in relation to the Olympics impact on much of the Brazilian population.
