Based on a reevaluation of the baroque and its use as an important cultural metaphor in contemporary art, the exhibition explored the influence and impact of the baroque, as a style and period, and the after-math and legacy of the colonization of the Americas. A sample of the group of international artists in the exhibition: Miguel Calderon, Maria Fernanda Cardosa, Rochelle Costi, Arthur Duclos, Lia Menna Barreto, Ruben Ortiz Torres, Meyer Vaisman, and Adriana Varejao.
