ART NEWS – Brazilian artist Maxwell Alexandre demanded that his work be removed from Inhotim, a museum and botanical garden in Brumadinho that counts among Brazil’s largest art institutions. His large-scale paintings were featured in an exhibition about the Black experience, and he said he had not consented to their inclusion. In a social media post, Alexandre wrote that he was embarrassed by “the communication of the exhibition,” titled “Quilombo: vida, problemas e aspirações donegro” (“Quilombo: life, problems and aspirations of the Black”), which opened at the museum on November 18. “My work and my concept were used without my consent as a central part of the exhibition.”
