Miguel Rio Branco
Miguel Rio Branco is one of the most important contemporary artist practicing in Brazil today. His work oscillates between the poetic and documentary, combining painting, collages, films and installations with his primary means of expression: photography.
A member of photographers group Magnum since 1980, Rio Branco has been shown in exhibitions at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Aperture Foundation in New York and the São Paulo Bienal. Since 2011 he has a pavilion dedicated to him at the contemporary art centre in Inhotim.
