When Lives Become Form: Contemporary Brazilian Art, 1960s to the Present
Opening Night Party
Celebrate the art, music and spirit of the tropics with Yerba Buena Center for the Arts! Join YBCA for the opening of its new exhibition, When Lives Become Form: Contemporary Brazilian Art, 1960s to the Present, with a party featuring Brazilian music, Campari cocktails and the fabulous YBCA crowd. Entertainment includes Grupo Falso Baiano, an ensemble of musicians who blend joyous Brazilian choro (considered the first pop music of Brazil) with modern influences such as jazz, flamenco and samba, while the Marcos Silva Ensemble features Rio-born renowned pianist Marcos Silva in a musical fusion of Tropicália with contemporary Brazilian pop.
When Lives Become Form: Contemporary Brazilian Art, 1960s to the Present (Nov 5, 2009-Jan 31, 2010) celebrates Brazil’s creative vitality through the works of artists, fashion designers and architects. The exhibition highlights artists and creators who were part of, or inspired by, “Tropicália”—an artistic movement which arose in Brazil during the 1960s around the “originality of the culture of people who live in the tropics.”
