Women who make IberoAmerica: Power behind the everyday

  • Hillyer Art Space 9 Hillyer Place Northwest Washington, DC, 20009 United States (map)

The Embassy of Brazil in Washington and the Association of IberoAmerican Cultural Attachés invite you to a photo exhibition celebrating  the power of women in everyday life. Photographer Guilherme Pupo portrays Juliana Medeiros, founder of a group of volunteers in Curitiba, State of Paraná, Brazil,  who, during early hours of the day, collect flowers that were used to decorate wedding cerimonies and parties, and make them into bouquets to be distributed to senior people in nursing homes. In the simplicity of offering flowers she shares love, happiness, and hope.

This picture shows Juliana laying on one of the many Curitiba’s mosaic sidewalks next to a basket of flowers, offering a bouquet to life. This particular mosaic can be seen as a “dandellion”, whose seeds are flying away to grow in other places as do the actions of Juliana’s volunteer group.

Women who make Ibero-America: Power Behind the Everyday will be on display at Hillyer Art Space from November 2 to December 17, 2018. An opening reception will be held on Friday, November 2 from 6 to 9 pm and a panel discussion on November 9 at 6 pm.
