About the Artist:
Bruno Miguel lives and works in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. An inveterate collector of quotidian objects, Miguel’s practice explores the fluid relationships and personal stories embedded in familiar household items and consumer products to reframe the international dimensions of Pop Art and the avant-garde in Brazil. Miguel’s paintings and installations—which frequently manipulate traditional Carnival techniques in polyurethane foam, resin, and papier-mache—convey the layered histories of Rio de Janeiro’s landscape from a critical periphery. Miguel graduated in Fine Arts and Painting from the School of Visual Arts, Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. Currently, he teaches art and art theory at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and at the School of Visual Arts, Parque Lage. His solo exhibitions include shows at Largo das Artes, Museum Paço Imperial, Rio de Janeiro, Centro Cultural da Caixa Econômica Federal, and Centro Cultural São Paulo. His work was included in group exhibitions at the Cultural Center Bank of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo; Museum of Contemporary Art, Santiago, Chile; Caixa Cultural, Rio de Janeiro; Museum of Modern Art, Rio de Janeiro. Defining Moments is Miguel’s first North American museum exhibition.
