Film by Burt Sun & André Costantini

FIAF, Florence Gould Hall

Burt Sun began his career as a multi-media artist, working in advertising, graphic design, theater and television production design, photography, and film. Sun has worked with major American theatre artists including Robert Woodruff, Anne Bogart, and Philip Glass. He has developed numerous original media projects that combine creative ideas and marketing strategies, attesting to his abilities to cross the borders between commercial and fine art. He currently serves as the creative director in media communication for Opera Boston.

Mr. Sun’s photographs have been exhibited throughout the United States, Europe, Central America, and Brazil. In 2009, the Urban Art Institute of MASSART commissioned Mr. Sun to create a book about urban street art in Brazil. He traveled to Salvador, in the Brazilian state of Bahia where he met Brazilian street artist Bel Borba and transformed the book project into a full length documentary entitled Bel Borba Aqui.

Mr. Sun is also the curator for Bel Borba’s current show Aqui, em 7 elementos at the Museum Rodin, Bahia, which opened in early 2012. This exhibit is considered by many art critics as one of the best art exhibits of the past twenty years.
