Miguel Rio Branco’s work includes paintings, photographs, films, and installations, often in the limits between these languages. His works present a violent and fragmented world that take the audience to somber areas of the social fabric and of human subjectivity. His works are shown in the international scene since the 1980s, and are included in the collections of different institutions, such as the Museu de Arte Moderna de São Paulo; the Instituto Inhotim, in Brumadinho; the Centre Georges Pompidou, in Paris; and the Stedelijk Museum, in Amsterdam. He has published Dulce Sudor Amargo (1985), Silent Book (1998), and Maldicidade (2014), among others. He lives and works in Araras, Brazil.
