About Rivane Neuenschwander and Cao Guimarães

Rivane Neuenschwander (b.1967, Brazil) is an artist whose work explores language, nature, geography, the passing of time and social interactions. In her installations, films and photographs, Neuenschwander employs fragile, unassuming materials to create aesthetic experiences, a process she describes as ‘ethereal materialism’. 

Cao Guimarães (b.1965, Brazil) is an artist and filmmaker whose work focuses on improvised or unexpected uses of everyday objects. His films have screened at numerous international film festivals including Cannes, Locarno, Sundance, Venice, Rotterdam and Berlinale, and were the subject of retrospectives at the Museum of Modern Art (2011), Buenos Aires International Festival of Independent Cinema (2014) and National Cinematheque Mexico (2014).
