Reception and Artist Program: Véxoa

Wednesday, September 20 @ 6:00 pm


Tufts University Art Galleries presents a reception and artist program for its new exhibition “Véxoa: We Know,” a survey exhibition of living Indigenous artists of Brazil. Originally organized for the Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo in 2020, “Véxoa” was the first exhibition curated by an Indigenous person to be shown in an art museum in Brazil. Tufts University Art Galleries welcomes these artists and collectives in collaboratively rewriting an art history that recognizes diversity among Indigenous peoples, the power of self-representation, and a pluralist perspective on artistic production in Brazil and the world beyond.

The reception will start with a discussion of the show and the central topics that bridge its travel from Brazil to Medford featuring co-curator Claudia Mattos Avolese, senior lecturer at SMFA at Tufts, and participating artists Denilson Baniwa and Daiara Tukano. This program will be presented in English and Portuguese. Please register through Eventbrite.

The exhibition will be on view through Sunday, December 10.
