RC009 MUAMBA: Brazilian Traces of Movement


curated by Lucas Albuquerque​ 

The exhibition by curator and researcher Lucas Albuquerque started with a proposition to transport the work of 26 Brazilian artists into the country in a single suitcase — which is exactly what he has done. Some of the most interesting emerging contemporary art from Brazil has come into the U.K. with him and no one is the wiser. His action speaks to the limitations of the circulation of the art object and, by extension, the artists themselves. Lucas has brought them to Ruby Cruel as ‘muamba’; a Brazilian term for contraband coined after the large woven baskets used to move goods from  Africa to Brazil during colonial times.
