In this Sunday Scene, researcher and editor Luciana De Oliveira will be speaking about Afro-Brazillian artist Paulo Nazareth and his exhibition STROKE, diving deep into the contexts of his artistic practice through the lens of Nazareth's life partner and spouse! De Oliveira will also talk about the Kaiowa Community's fight to gain their land back in Brazil, tying common themes in her work to topics raised in Nazareth's exhibition and their collaborative projects.
