Montages, collages, color and black and white photographs, and paintings from the 1960s, 1980s, and 1990s dialogue with recent installations. The vocabulary of Miguel Rio Branco, installation artist, painter, photographer, and filmmaker, foils all attempts to pigeonhole him into a single field. The sole guide in this “arena of might” is a critical view that confronts the antinomies and creates associations that open onto multiple interpretations. A view floating between the cruel and the lyrical, which rubs up against beauty and rearticulates the sublime and the abominable, pleasure and pain.
