The Videobrasil Collection in Context #1 exhibition was staged in Sao Paulo in February 2016, at Galpão VB | Associação Cultural Videobrasil. The exhibition showcased the first edition of the artist residency project, Videobrasil in Context, spearheaded by Videobrasil and held in partnership with the Delfina Foundation (London) and Casa Tomada (São Paulo).


For this inaugural edition, Videobrasil invited two artists, Cláudio Bueno and Mahmoud Khaled, selected via open call, to create new artworks based on their interaction with the Videobrasil Collection. The results of their residency were presented in an exhibition, featuring video works that served as objects of research and conceptual references for Bueno's and Khaled's projects, which include video works by Akram ZaatariCoco Fusco, Lucas Bambozzi, and Wagner Morales, among others. Bueno and Khaled's two original pieces are presented here exclusively on Ibraaz Channel until 31 October 2016.
