Terra Brasilis


From November 2 to December 1, 2019, Galerie Dauphine presents the Terra Brasilis exhibition and welcomes contemporary Brazilian photographers.

Paris is at the center of the photographic news in November the capital hosting many important events: fairs, conferences, exhibitions … which punctuate the cultural activity.

The Marché Dauphine wanted to participate in this highlight by giving carte blanche to one of the gallery owners: Ricardo Fernandes.

Noting that Brazilian photography is rather unknown outside its borders Ricardo Fernandes, curator of the exhibition, decided to highlight the Brazilian photographers of the current scene (Pedro David, Romy Pocztaruk, Lucia Adverse …) but also of other authors who helped write the history of Brazilian photography (Juan Esteves, Lita Cerqueira, Sebastião Salgado …).

Since 2015, the gallerist has worked closely with the curator for contemporary photography at the BnF, Héloïse Conesa. Together, they reflect on the enrichment of the collection of the Department of Prints and Photography with works by major contemporary Brazilian photographers.

At Marché Dauphine, over a dozen photographs of Brazilian artists will be presented:
Alexandre Serqueira , Andrea Eichenberger , Cristiano Xavier , Feco Hamburger , Felipe Fittipaldi , João Castilho , Juan Esteves , Lita Cerqueira , Lucia Adverse , Lula Ricardi , Pedro David ,
Romy Pocztaruk , Joaquim Paiva , José Diniz

This exhibition is only the first part of a larger project. The Commissioner hopes to show, at least every two years, the works of Brazilian photographers entering the Bnf. A complete presentation is also planned to highlight all the works of Brazilian photographers acquired by the BnF since the beginning of its purchasing policy. This project is supported by METROPOLE Atelier and Initial Labo.
