Getting inside Decor with Ernesto Neto
Suddenly, we’re already halfway through the year and the Southbank Centre is set to host some of the country’s biggest names with Festival Brazil, sponsored by HSBC.
Straight out of Salvador there’s, Brazil! Brazil! who will rock the purple Underbelly; the Youth Orchestra of Bahia; and AfroReggae who are also back in town. Meanwhile, talks tying in with London Literature Festival will welcome Milton Hatoum, Jungle collaborator Arnaldo Antunes and footballing legend, Socrates.
Ernesto Neto returns to the Hayward Gallery in June with The Edges of the World, a solo exhibition of his sensual creations (image) – and he also features in a showcase of contemporary artists, The New Décor.
Many restauarnts will celebrate with a dash of Brazil on their menus, and Jose Barattino will be chef-in-residence at the Royal Festival Hall’s Skylon restaurant from 21st-27th June.
