ABOUT THE ARTIST

Raphaela Melsohn received an BFA from Fundação Armando Alvares Penteado (FAAP), and her works have been featured in group exhibitions across Brazil, such as at the Instituto Tomie Ohtake, Red Bull Station, MAAB-FAAP, and the Museum of Art in Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo. She had solo shows at renowned institutions in Rio and São Paulo, such as the MIS-SP (Museum da Imagem e do Som). In 2014, Melsohn received the first prize at the 46th Annual Exhibition at FAAP and in 2016, she was artist-in-residence at the Red Gate Residency in China. In 2014, the artist created “Wearing a Trap,” a work in which she deals with the institutionalization, dissemination, and development of Nushu fight, created and practiced only by women. In doing this, Melsohn defies the way martial arts have been usually seen, as part of a predominantly male universe.
