On the occasion of the opening of Jaime Lauriano's solo exhibition, Nara Roesler New York invites you to the launch of the book Social Fabric: Art and Activism in Contemporary Brazil, the catalog of homonymous exhibition that was on view at The Visual Arts Center, situated in The College of Fine Arts at The University of Texas at Austin, from 2022 to 2023. 

On the same day, at 4 pm, Lauriano and the curator of the exhibition Igor Simões, will join art historian and curator Tie Jojima and the book's editor Adele Nelson for a conversation.
