The Parisian-based Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain will conclude on the 17th of October an eight-year long project-in-the-making, in partnership with the Triennale Milano. The new exhibition will feature the Brazilian photographer Claudia Anjujar.
Claudia Andujar dedicated more than fifty years of her life to protecting and photographing the Yanomami autochthonous people, one of the biggest groups of indigenous people in Brazil.
This exhibition is a direct reflexion of the Yanomami lifestyle, whose aim is anthropologic, artistic, as well as most importantly- political. The autochthonous people of the Amazonia have been the first to face consequences of deforestation due to illegal gold-digging and other crises destroying their habitat and culture.
The Triennale Milano will present more than three hundred pictures from Andujar, as well as documents and historical resources and work from Yanomami artists. This presentation is fully immersive, thanks to the use of a wide array of art mediums ranging from photography to audio-visuals. The retrospection features years of researching, processing, and archival approach with the help of Thyago Nogueira, director of the modern photography department in the Moreira Salles Institute.
This must-see exhibition will open its doors to the public on the 17th October at the Tiennale Milano. Our dear readers are also invited to attend the live presentation on October the 15th via the YouTube channels of both Cartier Institute for Modern Art and Triennale Milano.
