The first solo exhibition in the Netherlands of Anna Bella Geiger

The Frans Hals Museum is hosting Anna Bella Geiger. Native Brazil / Alien Brazil in collaboration with S.M.A.K. in Ghent and MASP in São Paulo. This is the first solo exhibition in the Netherlands of Anna Bella Geiger, one of the most important contemporary Brazilian artists.

This exhibition offers an introduction to the Brazilian art pioneer Anna Bella Geiger (Rio de Janeiro, 1933). In four themes, you can discover how she sees the body, her relationship to art, her home country of Brazil and the world as a whole. Her life and work are inextricably linked, and the questions raised in her work are more topical than ever.

Anna Bella Geiger has continuously provided new impulses to the development of contemporary art in Brazil. She created abstract work early on and was a pioneer in video art. Even under the difficult circumstances during the dictatorship in her country, she continued to make art. She remains an active artist to this day, creating etchings, engravings, sculptures and collages. Her extensive and versatile oeuvre spans over sixty years. Her work features in the collections of leading museums such as the Centre Pompidou (Paris) and the Museum of Modern Art (New York).

Anna Bella Geiger. Native Brazil / Alien Brazil challenges you to look at themes such as colonialism and emancipation from a new perspective. Looking through Anna Bella Geiger’s eyes introduces you to a different and changing view of the world.
