As part of the recently opened exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo, NeoTropicalia, Os Gemeos will give an artist talk about their latest work and contribution to the Brazilian-themed exhibtion. Championing the freedom of expression, the work of Os Gemeos, translated in Brazilian Portuguese as ‘The Twins,’ can be briefly characterized as street graffiti stylings which often expand into large, sprawling murals featuring their consistently styled characters. With an early New York style influence, Otavio and Gustavo Pandolfo’s work resonates a voice distinctly Brazilian wherever it is on display- from the favelas of Sao Paulo to New York to The Netherlands.

NeoTropicalia: When Lives Become Form features the works of 27 Brazilian artists to provide a snapshot of the cultural vibrance from a nation wedged between the pressing social, economic and cultural issues of our day. Recommended!
