Beal, Sophia. The Art of Brasília: 2000-2019. Palgrave Macmillan, 2020.
The central argument of The Art of Brasília: 2000-2019, Sophia Beal’s second book and second contribution to Palgrave Macmillan’s New Directions in Latino American Cultures series, is to correct what Beal considers the outdated reputation of Brasília as a cultural wasteland. While many artists and scholars have contemplated the birth and infancy of the national capital Juscelino Kubitschek ordered built from scratch in a mere few years (construction began in 1956 and the city was inaugurated in 1960), Beal points out the lack of scholarship dedicated to how Brasília and its art scene have evolved in the twenty-first century.
