The Quiet In The Land
Everyday Life, Contemporary Art, and Projeto Axé
Edited by John Alan Farmer, France Morin.
This much-anticipated book is published in conjunction with the second project in an innovative series of four, entitled The Quiet in the Land, and organized by independent curator France Morin*formerly Senior Curator at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York. For this project, an impressive roster of internationally renowned artists lived in Salvador, Brazil for an extended period, including: Janine Antoni, Montein Boonma and Rirkrit Tiravnija, Ca Guo-Quiag, Chen Zhen, Larry Clark, Willie Cole, Mario Cravo Neto, Domenico de Clario, Leonardo Drew, Jo—o Ewerton, Vik Muniz, Rivane Neuenschwander, Alberto Pita, Doris Salcedo, Tunga, Kara Walker, and Nari Ward. The artists developed individual projects with the children and educators of Projeto Axª, an organization that uses cultural and artistic pursuits to restore dignity to underprivileged children and to equip them with the tools they need to positively transform their lives.
