Art at Americas Society presents Bispo do Rosario: All Existing Materials on Earth, the first solo exhibition in the United States of Bispo do Rosario (b. 1909, Japaratuba, d. 1989, Rio de Janeiro), an Afro-Brazilian artist who created more than one thousand objects from within his confinement at Colônia Juliano Moreira, a psychiatric institution in Rio de Janeiro where he lived most of his life. The exhibition is bringing together iconic artworks by Bispo, including hand-embroidered textiles with assorted attached elements, mixed-media sculptures, and his signature “Annunciation Garment,” his best-known work.
