15.12.2021 - 7.3.2022

Berna Reale is one of 51 artists from different generations participating in the exhibition "Brasilidade Pós-Modernismo", which is on view at CCBB São Paulo through March 7.

Curated by Tereza de Arruda, the show celebrates the centennial of the 1922 Week of Modern Art and highlights the various characteristics of Brazilian contemporary art whose existence is due, in part, to the legacy of the artistic cultural boldness proposed by Modernism, while seeking to reflect on a process of revising and repairing this context from the present times.

Ginástica da Pele [Skin Gymnastics](2019), Reale's work that integrates the exhibition is a video record of a performance held by the artist in Belém that gathered more than 100 young men between 18 and 29 years old (average age of the prison population in Brazil) who have already been approached by the police and are part of prison statistics. Simulating the exercise of arresting, approaching, and incarcerating our youth, the work criticizes the police violence motivated by racial, class, and homophobic prejudice.
