About Marcela Cantuária: The South American Dream

Marcela Cantuária (b. 1991, Rio de Janeiro) often portrays female figures who navigate regional, international, and social boundaries.

Marcela Cantuária: The South American Dream is the artist’s first solo exhibition in the United States and presents all newly commissioned works. In this painting installation, Cantuária invites the viewer to consider the nature of these dreams. Explored within the three main paintings, she highlights the narratives of critical activists and environmentalists in South America. Cantuária’s vivid and colorful works are evidence of her versatility and investigations through various mediums and techniques, including painting, textile, and ceramics.
