RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Divortium Aquarum (Watershed), Brazilian artist José Rufino’s new installation opening this week (March 6th) at the Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil in Rio de Janeiro (CCBB), is the first in a schedule of exhibitions at CCBB focused on Brazilian contemporary artists. The series, being exhibited in the CCBB’s Contemporary Room, is intended to raise questions of Brazilians and the role of the Brazilian artist in presenting identity.
Rufino’s work has been focused on these issues for the past three decades and Divortium Aquarum is the perfect piece . . .
