“Art can not be empty, because the history of humanity repeats itself and is frightening. It is up to the artist to manifest himself through his work, and bequeath an interpretation of his time, a message.”
Duda Penteado is a multimedia artist who has lived between the United States and Brazil for almost 20 years and works with performance, video, installations, murals, sculptures, paintings, and other visual practices. In recent years Duda has devoted much of his work on important issues of peace, globalization, diaspora, dual citizenship, and other geopolitical and social phenomena of the twenty-first century. This year, Duda returns to his hometown of São Paulo, for the launch of his new book on Wednesday, May 21 at 7p.m. at the Book Store Cultura.
