The Embassy of Brazil proudly presents Collector Collecting, an exhibition on collecting, with Brazilian works selected from private collections in Britain.

A showcase of works by prominent Brazilian artists past and present, curated by Isobel Whitelegg and Maria do Mar Guinle, the exhibition will concentrate on key pieces in UK private collections and will be accompanied by a publication exploring the act of collecting and the relationship between artists and collectors.

The exhibition will include works by:

Brígida Baltar / Sandra Cinto / Lygia Clark / Detanico & Lain / Marcius Galan / André Komatsu / Cinthia Marcelle / Lucia Nogueira / Nicolás Robbio / Mira Schendel

Preceding the Private View on 15 October, the curators Maria do Mar Guinle and Isobel Whitelegg will be joined for a round table discussion by Guy Brett, John and Stuart Evans, Bel Pedrosa and the newly appointed Chief Curator of the 29th São Paulo Biennial, Moacir dos Anjos.

The works in the exhibition were kindly loaned by Guy Brett, Serena Cattaneo, Stuart and Margaret Evans, Jack Kirkland, Catherine and Franck Petitgas, and by the Lodeveans and Zabludowicz collections.
