From 08/24/2023 to 10/14/2023
São Paulo, Brasil

Ceremony is Mexican artist Tania Candiani’s first solo exhibition at Brazil in Vermelho Gallery.


A central concern in Tania Candiani’s work is the expanded idea of translation, extended to the experimental field through the use of visual, sound, textual and symbolic languages. Many of her projects consider the universe of sound and the politics of listening as tools capable of expanding and transforming perceptions, both human and non-human.

Another fundamental part of her work is related to feminist policies and practices, understanding them as a communal, affective and ritual experience.


Candiani’s production involves interdisciplinary work groups in various fields, consolidating intersections between art, architecture, labor, literature, music and science. Her work deals with ancestral knowledge and techniques, technologies, and their history in the production of knowledge.


In Ceremony, Tania Candiani presents five new series of paintings and embroidery and three video installations. A common trait present in all of the works are the convergent choreographies the artist makes between rituals and public manifestations.

Tania Candiani lives and works in Mexico City. She is a member of the National System of Art Creators of Mexico. Candiani is a recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship in the Arts and the Smithsonian Institution Research Grant for Artists. Tania Candiani is an artist-in-residence at the Arts at CERN program, Geneva, Switzerland. In 2015 she represented Mexico at the 56th Venice Biennale. Her work has been exhibited internationally in museums, institutions and independent spaces, and is part of important public and private collections.

Through contemporary art, Vermelho offers a space for dialogue and provocation, actions and reactions in society. Through the artists’ proposals, the gallery aims to offer a wide distribution of art. The intention is to activate creative output and collaborations between artists, collectors, institutions, other galleries and the public by exploring the zeitgeist through the visual arts. Founded in São Paulo in 2002, the gallery represents several generations of Latin American artists. It will be part of the 2023 edition of Pinta BAphoto with Andrés Ramírez Gavira's project, which will be exhibited from September 28 to October 1 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
