Antonio Obá

London: 13/11/17 — 17/12/17

In the field of art historiography, the work of Antonio Obá (Brazil) encourages an investigation of the relationships of influence and interchange in the construction of Brazilian culture and the erasing of the black element in the history of Brazilian art that, nonetheless, gives room to an act of resistance and reflection on the idea of a national identity. Antonio lives and works in Brasília.
