Although the Modern Art Week of 1922 has gone down in history as a synonym for the aesthetic rupture of its time, it left a lot to be desired in terms of racial and gender representation, perpetuating traces of the colonialism of power and knowledge, in the same year that Brazil was celebrating the centenary of the Independence. As much as its mentors focused on efforts to unveil a “new provocative character” in the Arts, the great event was conducted mostly by white men whose references pointed to Europe as the center of world artistic thought and production and having São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro as the dominant axes of the country's intellectual and political circulation.
