The basis of Dalton Paula’s work is the black body silenced by fear, insecurity, individuality and transience. The references are in the suburbs and in the Afro-Brazilian religious rituals. Myths acquire new life and meaning. The artist uses silence to communicate and awaken what is uncomfortable in our society to rethink and imprisoning images and to open up margins, that presents these black bodies in new contexts as protagonists who have been historically silenced. He has participated at the 32a Bienal de São Paulo (2016) and 2018 Triennial: Songs for Sabotage at the New Museum, in New York.
