This exhibition was organized in partnership with River Valley Arts Collective

Light Refreshments provided.

Bel Falleiros is a Brazilian artist whose practice focuses on place and belonging. Starting in her hometown of São Paulo, she has worked to understand how contemporary constructed landscapes (mis)represent the diverse layers of presence that constitute a place and how this affects its inhabitants. Walking is core to Falleiros’ practice and played a significant role in her first solo exhibition at CAIXA Cultural São Paulo in 2014. Since arriving in the United States, she has produced public land artworks at Pecos National Park, New Mexico (2016); at Burnside Farm, Detroit, IL (2017); in collaboration with Tewa Women United as part of the Santa Fe Art Institute’s Equal Justice Residency (2018); and as part of the MONUMENTS NOW’ show at Socrates Sculpture Park, NY (2020). Recently, Falleiros was featured in Under the ashes, ember at MAM, São Paulo (2022), the New York Latin American Art Triennial Abya Yala: Structural Origins (2022), and a solo exhibition Floresta de Pulsares (Forest of Pulses) at Wave Hill, in Bronx, New York (2023).

River Valley Arts Collective is a Hudson Valley-based, W.A.G.E. certified organization committed to fostering an inclusive creative community that is responsive and attuned to the ecology of our region. Through partnerships with neighboring arts organizations, foundations, studios, and farms, we curate exhibitions, commission new work, organize outdoor installations, give artists both material and monetary grants, coordinate residencies, host workshops, and spark vital discussions. As a nexus for regional artists and artisans to connect and collaborate with each other as well as with the broader community, we create a generative space for experimentation and shared learning. Our efforts foster the production of work that is as aesthetically and conceptually groundbreaking as it is environmentally aware.
