IMS Paulista presents the exhibition Carolina Maria de Jesus: um Brasil para os brasileiros [Carolina Maria de Jesus: a Brazil for Brazilians] dedicated to Carolina Maria de Jesus (1914, Sacramento, MG – 1977, São Paulo, SP).

Curated by Hélio Menezes and Raquel Barreto, the show approaches many aspects of the trajectory and work of the writer, acknowledged since the publication of Quarto de despejo (1960) as one of the most relevant expressions of Brazilian culture in the 20th century. The exhibition will problematize stereotypical perceptions of the writer, as a symbol of the black community in the country and a fundamental reference to reflect on during our present time.

Curatorship: Hélio Menezes and Raquel Barreto
