Cais do Oriente
Combining everyday scenes with elements that veer into the surreal and absurd, carioca artist Eduardo Berliner’s work has been lauded for its ability to both shock and seduce in one fell swoop. The first Brazilian to ever be featured in British art fanatic Charles Saatchi’s influential collection, Berliner constructs beautiful and unsettling images from observation, childhood memories and his own wild imagination.
For just over a month, the CCBB will host the Carioca artist’s largest individual exhibition to date, showcasing Berliner’s versatility with 30 of his oil paintings, watercolors, videos and sculptures. A compilation of works conceived specifically for the downtown space, together it gives contemporary art connoisseurs a free pass into Berliner's world of the fantastic and the bizarre.
