Exhibition and essays on Brazilian popular art and artists. The exhibition first appeared during the commemoration of the fifth centenary of the discovery of Brazil (April to Sept. 2000). Brazil's multiethnic culture is explored through several articles richly illustrated with examples of popular arts and handicrafts while a broad selection of 20th century paintings and sculpture reveal how popular culture has influenced and inspired trained artists and Brazilian identity.
