Overview

Valeska Soares: Any Moment Now is a mid-career survey exhibition of Soares' (b.1957) work, the first at a U.S. museum since 2003. The exhibition features approximately 45 multi-media works, sculptures, videos, and installations created by the Brazilian artist during the past two decades. This project represents a landmark partnership between Phoenix Art Museum and the Santa Barbara Museum of Art as part of the Getty-led Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative.

Valeska Soares creates polished, minimalistic artworks that encourage visitor participation. Through installation and assemblage, she engages with international art traditions and world literature. In her multifaceted art, she demonstrates a fascination with space and time, as well as what occurs beyond their perceived limits. Her works directly engage visitors’ subjectivities, cultivating both personal experience and universal knowledge and how each of these affects the other.
