Ricardo Alcaide

São Paulo, Brazil

November 7 - December 12, 2014


Artist Statement

Born in 1967 in Caracas, Venezuela, he currently lives and works in São Paolo, Brazil. Hinged between the poetic and the political, his juxtapositions of images and objects question how people cope with economic and social exclusion in different environments. He has been interested in the Latin American Modernist Movement’s often un-acknowledged debt to vernacular world architecture.
