This was the first exhibition outside of education that I've had the privilege to be invited to have taken part in!
It took place in Echo Studios in Sao Paulo between 18 Nov - 18 Dec.
The premise of the exhibition was to explore the influence of sound and music on the visual arts. I presented my Amy Winehouse portrait, with a QR code attached to play "Tears Dry On Their Own".
The wonderful curator of the exhibit @julauletta stated -
“Echo’s Studio is a multi-award wining sound studio based in the prestigious Vila Mariana neighborhood in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Apart from Echo’s, the space currently houses 3 audiovisual companies (Voz À Obra, FLAP and Affinitás) and also hosts workshops. It is a creative hub that offers services for the biggest brands in the market and records a variety of Brazilian celebrities and artists. By branching out to art exhibitions, the studio aims to widen their creative practice and also become a vibrant cultural centre.
During the exhibition, the studio will be hosting and recording the Paraty International Literary Festival (FLIP). The festival that began in Paraty, in the State of Rio de Janeiro, in 2003, and which has quickly become one of the most important cultural gatherings in South America, will be held online due to Covid. Therefore, a lot of amazing people will be coming to the studio to create live content for the festival.”
I am so grateful and excited to have been a part of this amazing opportunity.
