Lives and works in São Paulo
Talita Hoffmann holds a bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from ESPM/Porto Alegre and is currently taking Fine Arts at ECA/USP. Hoffmann was the recipient of the Acquisition Award at the IV João Simões Lopes Neto Visual Arts Award, at Museu de Arte Leopoldo Gotuzzo in Pelotas, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The artist was also granted the award A Novíssima Geração (The Newest Generation), promoted by Museu do Trabalho, in Porto Alegre, which aimed to discover new talents within the fine arts. Thanks to it, Hoffmann had the opportunity to realize her first solo exhibition, titled Campos e Antenas, in 2009. In addition, Hoffmann’s solo shows include Cidade no Interior (LOGO, São Paulo, 2013), and Combustível (Mini Galeria, Belo Horizonte, 2011).
Hoffmann’s most important group exhibitions comprise Shouts of Korea (Korea Trade Association & Gail Museum, Korea, 2014), Entre: Curadoria de A a Z (Museu de Arte Contemporânea do Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, Brazil, 2013), Fages & Hoffmann (I/_ Galeria, Buenos Aires, Argentina, 2011), The International New Talented Artist Exchange Exhibition (Art Emperor, Taiwan, 2011), Transfer (Pavilhão das Culturas Brasileiras, Parque Ibirapuera, São Paulo, Brazil, 2010), Nova (Museu da Imagem e do Som, São Paulo, Brazil, 2010), Lava at The Rag Factory (The Rag Factory, London, UK, 2010), Hartas Artistas (La Residencia, Bogotá; Taller 7, Medellín; Frontera Sur, Calli; Colombia, 2009), Helsinki Biennale (Design Museum, Helsinki, Finland, 2008). Her works relate to folk and naïf aesthetics, transposed to desolate, often apocalyptic, landscapes. Hoffmann’s growing collection of unusual characters can be seen practicing rituals as well as disturbing or adorable rehearsals.
