You want a country really hype? Go to Brazil! That is the place to be, at least till World Cup 2014.
The awesome Colombian magazine Exclama published the its newest issue on Brazil. I was invited to interview four contemporary artists: Henrique Oliveira is doing breathtaking reliefs with wood pieces attached to walls. Rejane Cantoni & Leonardo Crescenti are experimenting with science. Ana Luiza Dias has a metaphyisical approach to movement and repose. And Marcelo Cidade is criticizing politics with his installations.
