Published on the occasion of Adriana Varejão’s first solo museum show in the United States, this volume spans the period from 1993 to the present. 

One of Brazil’s leading artists, Varejão mines Brazilian culture and colonial history in her work, rife with references to historical maps, Baroque church interiors, and Portuguese tiles. Like her modernist forebearers, Varejão devours the rich and diverse culture of post-colonial, multicultural Brazil, churning it together with a strong art-historical sensibility to create work that is provocative, perceptive, and disarmingly visceral.
