This event has ended.

(In)visible Cities is a site-specific installation for the Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning gallery. In our era of globalization and technical advancement, the stratification between the rich and the poor is ever increasing and global poverty is often hidden by the glorious spectacles and futuristic prospects of media. De Carvalho’s project points out the ever growing poverty on the global level and raises the question of what to do. The installation consists of a few large-scale paintings of mixed media and an installation of bridge structures that connects the paintings together. The bridge structures, built from wood, depict winding, irregular paths and stairways, referencing the ever-present stairways in the slums of Brazil. The mixed-media paintings are made of recycled materials, wood, house paint, and collaged photographs taken in Queens. Upon entering the gallery, visitors are confronted by a chaotic, complex and paradoxical world where finding your way can be simultaneously treacherous and stimulating.
