Maxwell Alexandre: Pardo é Papel: The Glorious Victory and New Power
October 26, 2022 - January 8, 2023

The Brazilian artist’s North American debut exhibition introduces his focus on Black identity, representation, and empowerment, featuring new paintings commissioned by The Shed to mark the occasion. Alexandre’s multi-disciplinary canvases—often painted on Kraft paper, referred to in Portuguese as “pardo”—create a rich portrait of his background with references to hip-hop and rap culture, icons of pop- and consumer culture, and the dynamics of Black identity in Brazil.
