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.

Thyago Nogueira, curator (Instituto Moreira Salles - Brazil)

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.
