Jô Oliveira's Exhibition




December 14, 2013 to February 05, 2014



"The True Brazil" is a unique and special exhibition. First of all, it opens up to our young readers (and not only the young) the wonderful world of Brazilian folklore, popular culture, festivals and dances, as well as the life of the native inhabitants - the Indians. Secondly, the works' style is very interesting in itself. In Brazil this style of illustration and literature is called "Cordel". The tradition was born in Portugal in the 16th century, during the Renaissance period through the edition of thin booklets in simple paper, with popular stories on several subjects. In the 19th century this tradition was established in the Brazilian northeast, where Cordel literature can be seen until today.

Welcome to Brazil and take an unforgettable journey through the legends and stories of this wonderful country's life!
