The Center for Portuguese Studies and Culture at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in partnership with the New Bedford Whaling Museum and the Portuguese Consulate of New Bedford cordially invite you to the opening reception of the latest art exhibition through the event series, Cultures of the Portuguese-speaking World. The series is organized by the Center for Portuguese Studies and Cultures and UMD doctoral students, Fausta Boscacci, Ines Lima and Serena Rivera. It aims to promote the vibrant cultures of Portuguese-speaking communities around the world.

On Saturday April 16, 2016 from 2:00-4:00pm, there will be an opening reception for the latest exhibition, Acquaviva: Waters and Humans of Brazil and Portugal in the San Francisco Room at the New Bedford Whaling Museum. This exhibit features the photography of Brazil-native and Dartmouth-resident, Dário Borim, Jr., Professor of Luso-Afro-Brazilian Studies and Theory at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. The reception will include light refreshments free of charge. The exhibit is open to the public through April 30, 2016. 

Along with being a Professor and passionate photographer, he is also a blogger, a concert producer, a creative writer, an Internet/radio show host-programmer, and a translator. He has produced and presented the music and culture show Brazilliance on WUMD (89.3 FM, North Dartmouth) since December 2001. Borim’s creative nonfiction appears regularly in magazines, blogs and newspapers. His current research interests relate the senses to memory, and thought processes to life narratives. His published academic texts have focused on the interplay of literature and music. Books and periodicals from Belgium, Brazil, France, Peru, Taiwan, United Kingdom, and the United States have featured his writings.

The opening reception of Dário Borim's exhibit will include musical accompaniment by the Boston-based, Brazilian musician, Fernando Holz, one of Brazil's finest singer/songwriters. Fernando Holz is in class with Caetano Veloso, Ivan Lins, Djavan and Jobim. His voice is poignant and playful and his music comes from the soul.
