(p.xiv) (p.1) INTRODUCTION
Black Art in Brazil

Kimberly L. Cleveland

University Press of Florida

This chapter outlines the intersections of art, politics, and race in Brazil during the periods 1900–1950, 1950s–1984, and 1985–the present. The chapter traces the growth of both national and U.S.-based interest in black art in Brazil as well as the shift in discourse from black art to Afro-Brazilian art. Following a discussion of some of the implications surrounding race-related artistic labels, the chapter presents a case for the use of the term “black art” instead of “Afro-Brazilian art.” An explanation for the author’s approach is grounded in a summary of her academic training, methodology, and research undertaken in Brazil. The chapter identifies the specific ways in which the book expands upon the scholarship to-date and advances the current understanding of black art in Brazil. It concludes with an overview of the subsequent six chapters.
