Rivane Neuenschwander was born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, in 1967. She earned a BA in fine arts from the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, in 1993 and an MA from the Royal College of Art in London in 1998, where she was artist-in-residence from 1996–98. In her installations, film, and photography, Neuenschwander employs fragile, unassuming materials to create mesmerizing aesthetic experiences, a process she describes as “ethereal materialism.”
