End poster at Sesc 24 de Maio until the 12th of December, the Occupation Inspired Looks: Raquel Trindade, Queen Kambinda presents the work and life of multi-artist Raquel Trindade, born in Recife in 1936 and established in the city of Embu das Artes until her death in 2018. An icon of Afro-Brazilian culture, she was a writer, choreographer, plastic artist, carnival artist, activist against racism and defender of Afro-Brazilian theater and popular culture. She was also considered a griot, that is, guardian of African ancestral knowledge.

Great supporter of the production of other artists during her life, Trindade now serves as an inspiration for the 11 invited to participate in the show: Aline Bispo, Aretha Sadick, Bianca Foratori, Charlene Bicalho, Daisy Serena, Eve Queiróz, Ione Maria, Maria Trindade, Nenesurreal, Patricia Gonzalez and Sovereign Ziza. THE arte!brasileiros was at the show and spoke with Gabriela Xabay, Visual Arts technician at Sesc 24 de Maio and one of the curators of the show – signed by the unit's Visual Arts Center and by Renata Felinto.
