Rivane Neuenschwander

Brazil, 1967


Visual artist with a bachelor’s degree from the School of Fine Arts of the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, and a master’s degree from the Royal College of Art, London. In her installations, videos and photographs, Rivane works with commonplace, perishable materials (such as dust, leaves and flowers), seeking to maximize the observer’s sensitivity and make his contact with the everyday world happen through shades and layers, many times giving the public the possibility of intervening in the work. Through a process she describes as “ethereal materialism,” her works explore narratives about language, nature, geography, temporality and social interactions. She has taken part in important exhibitions and institutions such as the Biennials of São Paulo (1998), Venice (2005) and Mercosur (2007); the Museum of Modern Art, New York (2015); the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York (2015); and Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2003). She lives and works in São Paulo.
