Marcelo Cidade

A background as a graffiti artist has led Marcelo Cidade to his current practice, linking street culture with the language of contemporary art. His installation, performance, and video works take up themes of risk, surveillance, urban development, and the dynamics of public and private space. In the 2006 installation Transestatal, he built a fountain in the gallery space from a massive accumulation of debris found in the streets of São Paulo.
