This catalog supplements two monographic exhibitions with brazilian artist Sonia Gomes hosted by Museu de Arte Contemporânea (MAC), in Niterói, and Museu de Arte de São Paulo Assis Chateaubriand (MASP), in São Paulo. The title of the book, <em>Sonia Gomes: a vida renasce/ainda me levanto [Sonia Gomes: Life is Reborn/Still I Rise]</em> is a combination of the two separate exhibition’s titles: <em>A Vida Renasce, Sempre [Life is Reborn, Always], in Niterói and, Ainda Assim Me Levanto [Still I Rise]</em>, in São Paulo. The exhibitions showcase Gomes’ extraordinary contribution to the language of contemporary sculpture and can be viewed as complementary. The show at MAC Niterói brings together artworks spanning almost twenty years of her career; whilst in São Paulo, a new set of works was specially commissioned for MASP and Casa de Vidro.
