Gabriel Mascaro (1983) is an artist and a filmmaker. His work is characterized by the critical reading of the contemporary based on the observation or invention of the everyday. As a process, it uses staging, games of inversion, displacements and appropriation. He investigates relationships between micro-politics and everyday life in different media such as film, installation and photography. His works were projected or exhibited at festivals and exhibitions such as Panorama da Arte Brasileira at MAM-SP, São Paulo Biennale, La Biennale di Venezia – Orizzonti / Cinema, IDFA, Locarno, Toronto, Rotterdam, Oberhausen, Clermont Ferrand, the Guggenheim, Videobrasil, MACBAMuseum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona and MoMA. Mascaro participated in Videobrasil’s art residencies at Videoformes (FRA) and Wexner Center for Arts (USA). In 2015 he was nominated for the PIPA Award. His films won more than 50 international awards and in April of 2016 he had a retrospective at Lincoln Center in New York. He lives and works in Recife, Brazil.
