Pra Gringo Ver

Tuca Vieira que apresentou na Mostra SP o ensaio "Última Sessão", fotos da sessào derradeira do cine Gemini, está numa individual na 1500 Gallery, Nova York [anexo]. A exposição Berlinscapes abriu essa semana e é incrível. Os gringos estão com o olhar excelente da fotografia brasileira. 

Starting Wednesday, March 30, 1500 Gallery will be exhibiting Berlinscapes, new color photographs by Tuca Vieira, winner of the 2010 Premio Porto Seguro, the most important annual art photography prize in Brazil. 


Drawing on the formal rigor and architectural inspiration of the Düsseldorf School, Vieira creates his own distinctive style. Berlinscapes depicts functional architecture but in a nocturnal setting, with sensual lighting. One could describe it as a "tropicalization" of German photography's rigidity and formality - "Germany meets Brazil".  Made during Vieira's 2009 artist residency in Berlin, this body of work highlights the contrasts and juxtapositions of "old Berlin" and "new Berlin", revealing traces of not only divergent prosperity, but also the great battles for territorial and ideological conquest that caused it. If, on one hand, the physical presence of man escapes the viewfinder, on the other it is reinforced by clear evidence of man's effect on the landscape through monuments and markings, denoting conquests and circumscribing the course of history. From these fragments, the city of Berlin emerges in all its complexity.


Vieira is from Sao Paulo and from 2004-2009 worked as a reporter and photojournalist for the Brazilian newspaper Folha de São Paulo. Since 2002 Vieira has worked on personal projects relating to cityscapes, architecture and urbanism. His work is present in the collections of the Sao Paulo Museum of Art (Brazil), Itaú Cultural (Brazil), and the Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts (Japan), among others. For more information on Tuca Vieira please visit his page on 1500's website.


Berlinscapes will be on view at 1500 Gallery from March 30 - July 30, 2011. There will be a reception with the artist at 1500 Gallery on Wednesday, March 30, 6-8 pm, and Vieira will also be present at 1500 Gallery on the afternoon of Saturday, April 2. 1500 Gallery is located in New York City at 511 West 25th Street #607.
