A solo show by Juraci Dórea (1944, Feira de Santana, Brazil).
Despite the importance of his work, mainly related to ecological issues and in dialogue with popular culture and the people of the backcountry, Juraci Dórea is still little known by the general public. Dórea is a visual artist and architect. A pioneer in the integration of art with the landscape in Brazilian art, his work is linked with Bahia; more specifically, it dialogues with the civilization of leather, whose tradition still persists in the region between Monte Santo, Canudos and Feira de Santana, where he resides and works. He has participated in various divisions in Brazil and abroad. In 1996 he conceived the Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Feira de Santana.
