Description

The book discusses the representation of Amazonian indigenous cultures in art and anthropological exhibitions through the analysis of a series of case studies of temporary exhibitions taking place in museums and biennials in Brazil, Europe and the United States spanning a period of 25 years from the mid-1980s. The book puts forward the concept of ‘minor curating’ as a strategy to amplify access to collections of historical relevance for indigenous peoples and to enable them to develop projects that are politically, historically and culturally meaningful for their own societies through curatorial authorship.
