Sharing a common geopolitical status, the artists selected for Trânsitos Improváveis (Unlikely Transits) show how personal and political allegiances act as contaminants, fueling practices and investigations which can give rise to renewed readings of visual culture and history.

Consisting of 9 video works from across South America, China, Israel and USA, this exhibition aims to map out and comprehend the subjective, recasting personal memories and sensibilities within the public sphere, or questioning dominant histories, as in Unforgettable Memory, by Chinese artist Liu Wei, or Machines for Living, by the Polish-­American duo Marek Ranis and Jonathan Case.

First shown during the 17th International Contemporary Art Festival SESC_Videobrasil, as part of the Videobrasil Historical Collection, Trânsitos Improváveis (Unlikely Transits) demonstrates the unlikely transit of artists from the vast geopolitical South of the world.
