Black Art in Brazil

Kimberly L. Cleveland

University Press of Florida

This chapter highlights several connections and conclusions among the proceeding chapters. It emphasizes differences between modern and contemporary black art, including the shift from a sacred to a secular visual vocabulary and the implications this change has for black art’s ability to communicate blackness to its audiences. The chapter reviews what the five case studies reveal about the relevance of regional influences, opportunities for artists to express their views, self- and ethnic-identities, and varying identification with the term Afro-Brazilian art. The chapter also briefly outlines major artistic and social developments that have occurred in the past few years, which, together with the case studies on the individual artists, signal the growth, albeit tentative, of the role of black art in Brazil in the twenty-first century.

Keywords:   Afro-Brazilian art, black art, contemporary art, ethnicity, identity, influences, modern art, vocabulary
