Ana Maria Pacheco

Brighton Museum & Art Gallery: 1 May – 3 Oct 2004

In association with Pratt Contemporary Art and Salander-O'Reilly Galleries, New York

Ana Maria Pacheco is an artist of extraordinary diversity, with work ranging from sculpture to painting and printmaking. Drawing on a wide variety of cultural references that include Brazilian folklore, classical myth, mystical Catholicism and medieval satire, she creates works that play with the craft of storytelling.

This exhibition was centred on a large sculptural installation, Land of No Return, previously unseen in this country. A series of drawings and prints were also exhibited, as well as two Artist's Books by Ana Maria Pacheco, A Modern Bestiary and Sheba and Solomon.

Complementing the main exhibition were Ana Maria Pacheco Prints,  which brought together five sets of prints, ranging in medium from woodcuts to colour etchings and in subject-matter from Gargantua and Pantagruel to Tales of Transformation.

This National Touring Exhibition was organised by the Hayward Gallery for Arts Council of England. It opened at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery.
