Found in Dallas

As part of the City Gallery Program, Dallas City Performance Hall presents Found in Dallas, a mixed media assemblage and sculpture exhibition by Roberta Masciarelli.

Most of Roberta Masciarelli’s artworks are spaces where she tells stories. She invites the viewer to get inside the space, see the details from a close perspective and to understand how the piece was built.
Roberta’s style is loosely based on Brutalism – a short tendency in Architecture from the 1950’s to the 1970’s. In that school of thought, the infrastructure of a building was not hidden; electric wires, conduits, plumbing and other details were apparent to the user, making them part of the visual result.
The use of found objects is the main focus in Roberta’s creations. She conveys her message of imagining other solutions for waste by reusing what she has and recycling her disposables. She shows other uses for found objects and creates imaginary devices and factories with her sculptures.
Roberta Masciarelli is a Brazilian born visual artist based in Dallas for the past 18 years. Having been a full time artist for 10 years, she has participated in art events within the US in
Dallas, Washington DC, Santa Fe, Sedona and New York.
Internationally, she has exhibited in collective shows in England, Holland, Denmark, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, South Africa, New Zealand,
Bosnia, Japan, Italy and India.
She holds a bachelor’s degree in Architecture, from Mackenzie University, Sao Paulo, Brazil
