Brazilian contemporary art takes center stage at Sotheby's in New York this month in the latest sign of the South American giant's global rise, AFP reports. The "Brasil Vivido" selling exhibition includes some 50 works by 16 artists and will take place at the prestigious auction house May 10-29. "This is the first such event and is a particularly important one for Sotheby's," spokesman Dan Abernethy told AFP. For this first exclusively Brazilian event, Sotheby's experts have picked a wide range of samples from the country's creative talent, including Adriana Varejao, Carlito Carvalhosa and Miguel Rio Branco. Carvalhosa's sound installation "Sum of Days" was featured at New York's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in 2011. Varejao's work has also been shown at the MoMA, as well as at the city's Lehmann Maupin gallery. The sale will be held in Sotheby's S2 gallery space located at its New York headquarters. Sotheby's has shown a growing interest in Brazil in recent years, with the opening of an office in Sao Paulo in 2011 and the expansion of staff in the country. It also has representatives in Rio de Janeiro. "With Brazil becoming an ever increasing focus for Sotheby's, we are delighted to bring the creative richness and sophistication of the country's contemporary art to our S2 galleries," said Katia Mindlin Leite-Barbosa, president of Sotheby's Brazil. "Sotheby's remains the only international auction house with a formal presence in Brazil," she added.
