Aislan Pankararu (b. 1990) is a visual artist, originally from the Pankararu indigenous territory located in Petrolândia, in the Northeast of Brazil, and currently based in Brasília. In between hiatuses from his medical career as a doctor working for the Brazilian National Health Service (SUS), he has built an increasingly strong rapport within the contemporary Brazilian visual arts scene.

In his first international solo exhibition, at the Embassy, Aislan will showcase a collection of new paintings, produced during a month-long artistic residency in London. This initiative is part of a cultural exchange programme facilitated by People’s Palace Projects, an art research centre for social and climate justice, at Queen Mary University of London.

His exhibition will also mark the beginning of a three-day celebration of Indigenous cinema centred on the ECHOES Indigenous Film Festival, taking place at the ICA from 19 to 21 May. The programme of 18 films from all over Brazil, will be a unique opportunity to experience and appreciate the work of Indigenous cinematic talents, and engage in the vital dialogue concerning the plurality of Indigenous cinema, while exploring the challenges faced by Indigenous communities, including climate change, political and economic marginalisation, and human rights violations.
