Exhibition in Paris
The Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain is pleased to announce the largest exhibition to date dedicated to the work of Claudia Andujar. For over five decades, she has devoted her life to photographing and protecting the Yanomami, one of Brazil’s largest indigenous group.
Thyago Nogueira, curator (Instituto Moreira Salles - Brazil)
Through Claudia Andujar’s art, this show tells the story of a collective struggle that succeeded in protecting the Yanomami people from being exterminated because of a system based on economic greed. I am afraid to say that history is repeating itself with Covid 19, which is moving quickly into Yanomami lands, and the failure of the Brazilian government to act. If nothing is done, another major humanitarian disaster will take place here.

Claudia Andujar, The Yanomami Struggle
Further enhancing the exhibition, the Fondation Cartier publishes a catalog presenting the artist’s photography, as well as excerpts from her notebooks. It also includes texts by Claudia Andujar, Thyago Nogueira—exhibition curator—and Bruce Albert, an anthropologist who spent time living with the Yanomami, as well as a map of Yanomami territory and a chronology that documents both the artist’s commitment to their cause and the history of one of the last tribes of the Amazon rainforest.
