Last chance: The Wexner’s “Cruzamentos: Contemporary Art of Brazil” exhibit is almost over

From the April 17, 2014 edition

The most comprehensive exhibition of contemporary Brazilian art in North America ends this Sunday. With 35 artists participating in an expansive variety of mediums (painting, installations, video, sculpture and massive collages to name a few), if you haven’t been yet, it’s must see with some beautiful and groundbreaking art.

If you have experienced “Cruzamentos,” you know it’s worth a second, possibly third, viewing. A couple pieces have (intentionally) changed significantly over the course of the two-plus months — Tatiana Blass’s melting canine sculpture is an ideal example. Not to mention, the documentation of Jonathas de Andrade’s short film “The Uprising,” and the film itself, is worth another in-depth examination alone.
