Jonathas de Andrade uses photography, installation and video to traverse collective memory and history, making use of strategies that shuffle fiction and reality. De Andrade collects and catalogues architecture, images, texts, life stories and recomposes a personal narrative of the past.
Past solo museum exhibitions include Instituto Cultural Itaú in São Paulo, Instituto Cultural Banco Real in Recife, Centro Cultural São Paulo, Museu de Arte Contemporânea de São Paulo, Kunsthalle Lissabon in Lisbon, Musée d’art Contemporain de Montréal, Museu de Arte do Rio, Museu de Arte de São Paulo, The Power Plant in Toronto, and New Museum in New York.
De Andrade has participated at the Mercosul Biennial in Porto Alegre, New Museum Triennial in New York, 29th São Paulo Biennial, Istanbul Biennial, Lyon Biennial, Performa15 in New York, Bienal de São Paulo, and in SITE Santa Fe. Jonathas de Andrade's work was also included in Under the Same Sun: Art from Latin America Today at the Guggenheim Museum in New York in 2014, Question the Wall Itself at the Walker Art Center and Unfinished Conversations: New Work from the Collection at The Museum of Modern Art in New York.
